Proton Beam Therapy Guides
With the NHS Proton Beam Centre at The Christie, Manchester, treating its first patient in January 2019, interest is growing in proton therapy. It is therefore important to have independent, factual information available on the treatment and what it offers. It is also important to you have a balanced view, which puts Proton Beam Therapy in context with respect to other treatments. This is crucial for people with a brain tumour (adults as well as children), their caregivers and stakeholders in the public and the private sectors.
The guides cover:
- Proton therapy myth busting
- Understanding the clincial decision process
- Understanding the pathway
- Should I have proton therapy
- Where should I have proton therapy
- What to expect
- How it works
- Proton therapy and clinical research
All the guides have been written in easy-to-understand text with the input of leading experts in the field and with patient experts.
