Join us for a 90 minute webinar to introduce the Day of Treatment (DOT) assessment tool, a standardised risk assessment tool to support you to evaluate and grade toxicities that your patients may be experiencing on the day of treatment and escalate their care appropriately.

This activity is eligible for self-directed professional development points.

Following the webinar, you will be able to:

  • identify the risks associated with assessing and grading toxicities
  • demonstrate how to use the DOT tool and log sheet to safely assess your patient on the day of their cancer treatment and escalate care appropriately
  • identify and locate supportive resources available through eviQ and eviQ Education.
