Cancer Survivorship Programs: Who, What and How?
The 2012 Nursing Program: Advancing Oncology Nursing™ webinar series will provide the oncology nurse with comprehensive and clinically relevant information regarding the management of patients with cancer. This series will focus on genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancer, cancer pain management, the challenges of oral therapy regimens, dermatologic toxicities, nursing considerations for advanced lung cancer and advanced colorectal cancer, and the nurse's role in cancer survivorship care.
