Building Nursing Knowledge Through Case Studies: Clinical Trials, Genomics, and Prognosis

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

Clinical trials are important in the advancement of treatment options for patients with blood cancers. Oncology nurses are key players in clinical trials, including identifying, implementing, educating, treating, monitoring and navigating patients throughout their cancer experience. Personalized nurse-patient communication can contribute to patient enrollment and promote optimal outcomes related to their treatment. 

Through discussion of case studies, this symposium will provide an opportunity for nurses to expand their knowledge about how clinical trials and genomics influence treatment and prognosis for patients with blood cancer. The significant role of patient-nurse communication related to testing, treatment, and other challenges, such as prognosis, ethical issues, diversity and clinical trials will be discussed. This symposium will include interactive discussion among participants and with the panel to build knowledge among nurses and for nurses to use this knowledge to impact and improve patient care. Register here.
