Symptom Management: An Expanded Role for Nurses in Educating and Supporting Patients

This is the first part of a three-part series spotlighting key issues and challenges for oncology nurses practicing today. Oncology Nursing News was honored to host a roundtable with faculty leaders from some of the top schools and colleges of nursing with oncology programs— many of which are members of our Strategic Alliance Partnership initiative—who were in Washington, DC, for the 2013 Annual Congress of the Oncology Nursing Society. Here, we feature panelists’ perspectives on the critical role played by oncology nursing professionals in helping patients with cancer to manage their symptoms and any treatment-related adverse events.
