Building Patient-Nurse Trust Is Crucial

When it comes to patient-nurse relationships in cancer care, "You've got to be there for them," says Jill Schwartz Gomez, RN, CCRP.

Jill Schwartz Gomez, RN, CCRP, research nurse supervisor at the Department of Breast Medical Oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, offers hope for oncology nurses everywhere: "You’ve got to be there for them."

Patients with cancer are often stressed out and will go to their oncology nurses as the first line of communication and with any concerns that they might have. This is why it is crucial that nurses educate patients about their disease and treatments, as well as establish a sense of trust between them.
