According to the previously prepared randomization list, the study group consisted of a total of 88 people, 41 in the experimental group and 47 in the control group. While the standard treatment approaches of the hospital are applied to all patients, a nursing navigation program will be applied in addition to the patients in the experimental group.Quality of life and toxicity criteria will be applied to all patients as measurement tools.

Clinical Trial Description

The navigation program will be started on the day patients start their treatment. Before starting radiotherapy on the first day of radiotherapy, patients will be given a visual education guide about the radiotherapy treatment and the expected side effects. Afterwards, there will be a weekly follow-up with phone reminders. Inclusion criteria in the study; Being over the age of 18, the patient whose treatment and follow-up will continue for 7 weeks, patient diagnosed with head and neck cancer, scheduled to receive radiotherapy, patients who verbally and in writing approved to participate in the study after the explanation about the research.

Quality of life measurements will be repeated at the end and middle of the treatment. In addition, weight measurements and laboratory follow-up of the patients will be done at the beginning and at the end of the study.
