Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Brain and Spine Tumors: What the Oncology and Neurosurgery Nurse Needs to Know

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

The medical literature is full of articles on stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), a non-invasive, ambulatory procedure for brain and spine tumors not suited for surgical resection. But have nurses been adequately prepared to care for patients receiving cranial SRS? Come learn how you can contribute to the goals of SRS—those like arresting tumor growth and decreasing pain from spine lesions—and recognize adverse events such as potential motor or sensory decline. You’ll also learn to identify the benefits of SRS for patients with cancer, including tumor control and/or effective pain relief.

1. Identify the benefits of SRS to the oncology patient.
2. Empower the nurse with knowledge about SRS to enhance patient education efforts.
