Cancer Care Course

Bangkok Dusit Medical Services

The developments of medical emergencies related to the underlying disease or as a result of complications of therapy are common in patients with hematologic or solid tumors. A small percentage of Cancer patients will experience an emergent cancer-related complication at some point during the disease course. Emergencies in hematology and oncology can be broadly classified as conditions resulting from the cancer itself and complications related to therapy directed against the malignant disease. Therefore, it is critically important that all healthcare professionals have a working knowledge of the potential oncological emergencies/complication that may present in their practice and able to rapidly recognize and effectively manage patients with these complications without delay.
