Managing Symptoms and Side Effects


Symptoms & Side Effects

Cancer and its treatment can cause symptoms and side effects that can be physical, mental or emotional. Nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, and depression are examples of symptoms or side effects.

Person-centred Care Approach

Cancer Care Alberta is committed to a person-centred care approach. We use a form called Putting Patients First to help us learn what is important to you. This communication tool helps us understand what challenges you are facing and what supports you may need.
