The Evolving Role of the Community Oncology Nurse in Cancer Anorexia-Cachexia Syndrome

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Oncology nurses are in a unique position to identify early signs and symptoms of cancer anorexia-cachexia syndrome (CACS) and monitor the success of interventions intended to abate its effects. In support of these nursing roles, education on the pathophysiologic processes, key signs and symptoms, and attributes of the CACS continuum can counteract older perspectives of the syndrome as a late-stage harbinger of active dying. 

This theater presentation will enhance attendees' clinical and professional understanding of the multifaceted attributes of cancer anorexia-cachexia syndrome (CACS) and the evolving treatment role that community oncology nurses play in its management.
