Chemotherapy may be offered as a treatment option for many different types of cancer. The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) has a dedicated oncology clinic that provides chemotherapy treatment to adult outpatients.

Chemotherapy treatments are prescribed by a cancer specialist, prepared onsite by an oncology pharmacist and administered to the patient by specially trained and certified oncology nurses.

Treatment is prescribed following the best practice guidelines established by Cancer Care Ontario.

What We Offer

Every patient who is referred for chemotherapy will receive:

  • Consultation with their cancer care specialist
  • Education and ongoing support from an interprofessional team, including medical oncologists, haematologists, nurses, pharmacists, social workers and registered dietitians

Generally, patients receive their treatment in the outpatient clinic and return home the same day.
