And the Beat Goes On: Addressing Cardiac Complications in Patients With Cancer

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

Oncology nurses aren’t always tuned in to the early cardiac signs and symptoms that put a patient with cancer at risk for complications. Yet with the American population aging, more individuals are likely to be diagnosed not only with cancer, but heart disease as well. During this session, you’ll boost your assessment and evaluation skills, helping you to become a watchdog for potential and actual cardiac complications. 

Objectives
1. Describe focused cardiac assessment of patients with cardiac complications.
2. Evaluate cardiac complications in relation to patient treatment and prognosis.
