Financial Toxicity in the Care of Patients with Hematologic Malignancies
The increasing costs of cancer care have led to an increase in the numbers of patients affected by financial toxicity (FT), which can have dire consequences including bankruptcy and non-adherence to care and worse oncologic outcomes. Although health care providers, including oncology nurses, can help address FT by discussing the costs of care with patients and through other interventions, many do not feel comfortable doing this. Education on the prevalence of, risk factors for, consequences of, and techniques to reduce financial toxicity can help providers help their patients with cancer avoid or minimize FT.
