Please note: The U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center provides a printed version of this guide to our patients, which includes information specific to them. If you are not receiving chemotherapy at one of our infusion centers, this information will not necessarily apply to you.

If you are a patient, you can print a copy of our What to Expect . . . A Guide to Cancer Infusion Therapy [pdf].

The following information provides answers to many common questions about chemotherapy treatment; offering ideas to prepare for treatment and describing what it will be like. It also contains suggestions to help you care for yourself during treatment.

Our goal at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center is to provide our patients and families with the highest quality care. This includes administering the necessary treatments as well as providing the education and support needed throughout these treatments.

This booklet should be used in combination with the Chemotherapy and You[pdf] booklet produced by the National Cancer Institute.

Cancer Center Patients: Your health care team will also provide you with verbal and written instructions about your chemotherapy treatment. You should refer to these materials for information about your specific treatment plan.
