Dr. Gail Macartney, Director of Nursing Research & Knowledge Translation at CHEO, discusses her research into the links between quality of life and daily symptoms in pediatric cancer patients.
Research has indicated that on average, patients suffer six symptoms a day and addressing these daily ailments can help improve patients’ health and satisfaction.
