Prof Martin Gore and Prof Gordon McVie sit down at the National Cancer Research Institutes cancer conference in Liverpool, UK to discuss the prevention of toxicity and side effects during treatment. The management of all therapies and side effects is essential to long term care of patients, but the most important element of prevention is patient education.

Education is the common thread for preparative and preventative treatment to ensure that patients have the required knowledge to take decisions and improve their quality of life.
