Anita Mahajan on Patient Education for Patients with Brain Cancer

Tuesday, November 08, 2016

Anita Mahajan, MD, from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, explains what nurses should focus on when educating patients with brain cancer.

Being aware of symptoms and able to explain the symptoms to patients is important. If patients understand the side effects, it can alleviate some of the anxiety that comes with them. Nurses should also know who to contact and refer patients to for certain symptoms. Nurses are also an integral part of reinforcing the reminders for lifestyle changes and medication.

Talk about this article with nurses and others in the oncology community in the General Discussions Oncology Nursing News discussion group.
