Checklist of Example Questions for Your Visit to the Radiotherapeutic-Oncologist
Your first meeting with your radiotherapeutic-oncologist (= radiation doctor) is coming up. If you are not sure of what questions to ask during this meeting, the following checklist may be helpful.
Select the questions on the list which you would like to have answered.
Radiotherapy (radiation treatment)
The answers to the questions on the checklist may be different for individual patients and individual situations. Your radiotherapeutic-oncologist will therefore discuss the answers with you during your first meeting.
If you have any other questions for which you need answers before your first appointment, please go to ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ (this page is being finalised) and/or the ‘Glossary’. This is where you will be able to find answers to frequently asked questions.
Tips to use during your appointment
- You cab print your checklist and take it with you to your appointment.
- If possible, ask someone close to you to accompany you to your appointment. This person may be able to support you and listen together with you to the information given by the doctor.
- You or the person accompanying you can take notes during the appointment. This allows you to carefully read through the information again once you return home.
- If there is something you do not understand properly or have doubts about, ask the radiotherapist-oncologist to give you an explenation.
- There is no such thing as a silly question. If you have a question bothering you, you should always ask.
