Megan Hoffman on the Importance of Nurses Understanding Genomics

By Megan Hoffman, MSN, RN, CMSRN, AOCNS
PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1969

Megan Hoffman, MSN, RN, CMSRN, AOCNS, of Moffitt Cancer Center, discusses the importance of nurse's understanding genomics so their patients can get the full benefit.

Genomics, using the genetic information of a patient's tumor to tailor care to their cancer specifically, is the future of cancer care. Therefore, it is essential that nurses understand this field -- the tests being done and how that information is used, the treatments that result -- so they can properly explain it to their patients.
