Ann Culkin on Helping Patients Interpret Information Exchanged Online


Ann Culkin discusses how to help patients interpret and understand information they receive from the internet.

Ann Culkin, RN, OCN, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses how nurses can help their patients to interpret information exchanged over the internet.

It’s important that patients understand information they’re receiving from social media, blogs, or other websites. Culkin suggests bringing the focus back to personalized care with a focus on helping the patient to understand their own cancer at that particular time. Additionally, she suggests referring patients to up-to-date, accurate websites, such as the ASCO site or the ONS site.
