Radiation therapy is performed on people who suffer from the deadly disease of cancer. It is a therapy that is used by most of the doctors nowadays to treat cancer. All the different types of cancer are treated using radiation therapy. The doctors on the patients perform not one, but multiple radiation therapies as a treatment for cancer.

Before going to the radiation therapy treatment, one needs to know the exact details and the proceedings related to the therapy.  The entire team responsible for radiation therapy makes the patient aware of the exact spot of the therapy.

 

It is extremely vital for the team to find a comfortable spot for the person. The person will lie still on the bed, so it becomes extremely important for the team to find a comfort zone. Now the bed on which the patient will lie is the exact same used in the radiation therapies of others. Also, cushions and pillows are used to keep the patient still in a definite position. The radiation therapy team will mark the part of the body that will be open to radiation. Nursing care for radiation therapy patients is extremely necessary to get the desired result.

  • Internal beam radiation therapy: These types of therapies use a solid medium for called brachytherapy, i.e., a ribbon or capsule or a liquid is put inside the body near the affected part.  

The side effect of radiation therapy is mainly due to the damage which is brought about on many healthy cells during the killing process of the cancer cells. The side effects depend upon the dosage of radiation, the type of radiation, part of the body where the radiation therapy is performed, the overall health condition of the person. The side effect of radiation therapy involves many such complications such as affecting the gastrointestinal tracts (G.I.), red blood cells, white blood cells, and bone marrow. Fatigue and anemia are common problems after radiation therapy. Since the radiation is exposed to the skin, many skin related problem may occur including hair loss and hair pigmentation. It also causes a weight loss due to a loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting. The radiation may even decrease the total blood cell count.

The following are the nursing care plan for radiation therapies:

 

  1. Education and experience of proper caregiving are required along with proper knowledge of the treatment.
  2. To minimize the different side effects after radiation therapy, all necessary measures must be taken such as using a condom during sexual intercourse.
  3. A safe and hygienic environment must be provided to the patient.
  4. External radiation therapy nursing care includes dental care, care towards the fatigue caused by the therapy, emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, etc.

  • radiation therapy nursing care , Radiation Therapy  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • radiation therapy nursing care , Radiation Therapy  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended
