NEW COURSE: Managing Physical Effects

5th January 2021

We are delighted to announce that GatewayC’s ‘Managing Physical Effects’ course is now available.

According to Macmillan, at least 1 in 4 patients will experience consequences of their cancer or treatment that affect their quality of life. Whilst most side effects occur during or immediately after treatment and settle quickly, some individuals have persistent side effects, or side effects that develop months or years after treatment.
