Nurses Get Creative When Addressing Financial Toxicity

ANGEE KILMER, BSN, RN-BC | April 26, 2019


Oncology nurses can get creative when it comes to helping patients who face financial toxicity, explained Angee Kilmer, BSN, RN-BC, nursing supervisor of radiation oncology for the University of Kansas Cancer Centers and contributor for Oncology Nursing News

When patients are having trouble paying for their medications, it is crucial that they talk to someone on their healthcare teams -- and that person is usually an oncology nurse. Nurses should always be open to the conversation, and assure the patient that there are things they can do to help, be it asking for samples or finding drug co-pay assistance programs.
