Radiotherapy skincare

Skincare of patients receiving radiotherapy

This best practice statement can be used in a variety of ways, although primarily it is intended to serve as a guide to best practice and promote a consistent and cohesive approach to care. The statement is intended to be challenging but realistic and can be used:

  • as a basis for developing and improving care directly and indirectly
  • to stimulate learning among multidisciplinary teams
  •  to promote effective multiprofessional team working and enhance partnerships with patients, carer(s) and relevant others
  • to stimulate ideas and priorities for research.
