Deborah Watkins Bruner Discusses Financial Toxicity


Deborah Watkins Bruner advises nurses on how they can help patients with cancer who are struggling financially.

Deborah Watkins Bruner, RN, PhD, FAAN, from the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, discusses the toll that financial toxicity can take on patients with cancer, and how nurses can help.

She suggests that nurses be aware of the patient's situation, as well as all treatment options. There may be shorter and less expensive therapies available that could ease the financial burden a patient has to face.
