Morganna Freeman on Helping Patients Focus on Treatment Not Stigma

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Morganna Freeman, DO, FCAP, from The Angeles Clinic and Research Institute gives advice on how to help a patient who is dealing with the stigma associated with melanoma, or other cancers.

Many patients with melanoma can feel guilty because of the stigma surrounding this cancer, similar to that with lung cancer. Freeman stresses a focus on moving forward, and making a plan of action. She also encourages nurses to recommend advocacy groups to their patients.

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