Brain tumour info booklet created by nurse — and patient's daughter
Mary Fraser, a specialist neuro-oncology liaison nurse at the Southern General Hospital (SGH), and Jetta McGill, whose father died from a brain tumour, have collaborated to create the brochure aimed at both patients and carers.
Ms Fraser said: "Common questions include are they going to be very sick during treatment, but chemotherapy for brain tumours is not as severe as some for other tumour sites.
"The booklets also explain the psychological and emotional effects of a brain tumour."
The booklet is a project commissioned by the Scottish Adult Neuro-oncology Network.
