Answer

Patients should receive a clear and detailed explanation of all the available treatment options, prognosis, and adverse effects of chemotherapy. Advise patients to call their oncologists as necessary and educate patients about oncologic emergencies that require an immediate emergency department visit. Suggest psychosocial counseling.

For patient education information, see Lymphoma.
