Caring for the Oncology Patient Receiving Radiation Therapy: Treatment and Management Strategies

Registration on Pause
Due to the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, we have decided to pause online registration until further notice. By taking this precautionary measure, we are acting in the best interest of MSK staff, and the healthcare community. Please email if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to hosting you at one of our live or virtual conferences in the future.

In the event we need to cancel a course, a full refund will be honored.


This program is designed to enable the learner to accurately manage the side effects of radiation. The program will provide a foundation which the nurse learner will be able to use to educate patients and their families regarding the short and long-term side effects of radiation, as well as strategies to improve the patient’s quality of life. 


New and experienced nurses who care for patients receiving radiation therapy
