Ronald Natale on How Nurses Contribute to Patients' Quality of Life


Oncology nurses are an important resource for patients with cancer when dealing with adverse effects that can be disruptive to quality of life.

Ronald Natale, MD, of the Samuel Ocean Comprehensive Cancer Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, talks about the important role a nurse can play in improving the quality of life of patients with cancer.

When it comes to patients who have an EGRF-mutated lung cancer, adverse effects of the treatment can be annoying more than life-threatening. When it comes to dealing with skin, brittle hair/hair dye, and nail weakness, the oncology nurses become an important resource for patients, especially because many patients are on these therapies for a long time.
