This Issue of Homecare Insider

Homecare Insider, October 14, 2013


According to the National Cancer Institute there have been an estimated 30,640 new cases and 21,670 deaths from liver and intrahepatic bile duct cancer in the United States in 2013. Unfortunately, liver cancer sufferers may not have symptoms until the cancer is advanced, making it hard to treat. This issue of Homecare Insider focuses on liver cancer awareness, and reminds staff of the risk factors and symptoms of this serious condition.

Our Q&A discusses how homecare staff can help treat patients who are receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
