Radiation therapy is one of the key treatments for cancer. On this course you will learn from healthcare experts about how it works, the various benefits, and myths surrounding radiation therapy. You will also learn about the treatment pathway if you’re prescribed a course of radiation therapy.

Throughout the course you will find clear, straightforward information on radiation therapy as a cancer treatment. Finally you will look at the exciting new radiation therapy treatments being developed as a system of ‘personalised medicine’.
