Oncology nurses are crucial in the management of cancer symptoms and treatment-related adverse events, explained Hope S. Rugo, the director of Breast Oncology and Clinical Trials Education at the University of California San Francisco Comprehensive Cancer Center. 

Nurses work hand-in-hand with doctors, and by staying in touch with patients, they offer them a "lifeline for management," Rugo said, citing that a recent study even found that the upfront management of symptoms can lead to better outcomes.
