Being diagnosed with cancer can be a very diffcult experience for the patient and family. They require more than just medical treatment, they need the care and support of their family.

What is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy (sometimes just called ‘chemo’) is the use of drugs to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells. The drugs are called cytotoxic, which means toxic to cells (cyto).

Is it painful?

Having an intravenous chemotherapy may feel like taking a blood test. Alternatively, if you have a temporary tube (cannula) in your hand or arm, only the initial injection may hurt. If you have a central venous access device, it should not painful.

Chemo at home, an alternative!

Your primary oncologist will decide if you can take chemo@home. Philips Healthcare@home ensures medical supervision and monitoring during chemo@home to ensure patient comfort and safety.

Additionally, only oncologist-approved devices and medications are used for chemo@home to not compromise on the patients' health and safety.

How can side efdects be managed?

Complementary therapies are sometimes used with conventional medical treatments. They may offer physical, emotional and spiritual support, help manage side effects, and improve quality of life. Philips Healthcare@home proactively works with your primary oncologist to agree on a care plan that factors in the management of side effects to ensure a comfortable recovery.

Is chemo@home more expensive?
