Symptom Management Guides

If you have cancer you may get side effects from your treatment. You might also have symptoms from the cancer itself. Ontario Health - Cancer Care Ontario has created guides to help you and your loved ones manage your symptoms.

The guides are filled with easy to understand, practical tips for what you should do and when to get help from your health care team.

Other resources created by reputable organizations are also included (for example, sleep problems by the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre/Waterloo Wellington Regional Cancer Program, and BC Cancer Agency).
