Cancer Care Providers: Don't Work in Silos

SUSAN WEISS BEHREND, RN, MSN, AOCN | April 24, 2019


The most valuable thing that healthcare providers can do to ensure quality multidisciplinary care is communicate with one another, explained Susan Weiss Behrend, RN, MSN, AOCN, an advanced practice nurse at the Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Nowadays, providers typically talk to each other electronically, be it through electronic medical records or email, but it is also important that nurses attend tumor boards and clinical chart rounds and, “ensure that you have a seat at the table,” when it comes to patient care, according to Behrend. Streamlined communication among members of the healthcare team can result in more benefits and less anxiety for the patients.
