Breast Cancer Care Gets Personal
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States and care is becoming more personalized, with treatment options tailored to the individual patient. Although incidence has been rising, mortality is declining thanks to earlier detection and treatment advances. This course supports direct-care nurses by providing insight to evidence-based care for patients with breast cancer.
Lung Cancer: Not Just a Smoker's Disease
Although lung cancer is inextricably linked to smoking, about 25% of lung cancers occur in never-smokers. This course examines risk factors, assessment, and treatment of lung cancer in never smokers; addresses the physical and psychosocial impact of the disease; and discusses the nurse's role in promoting positive outcomes, including lung cancer screening and patient education.
Managing Chronic Pain in Cancer Survivors
Cancer Survivors, who are at a higher risk of chronic pain than the general population, require detailed assessment to help identify the cause of their pain. This course focuses on cancer survivors who show no evidence of disease but are experiencing chronic pain.
Oral Chemotherapy: Not Just Another Pill
In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration has approved many new anticancer medications that are taken primarily by mouth. Patients taking oral drugs may end up being seen by many different healthcare team members, some of whom may be unaware of the possible toxicities of these therapies—or even that the patient’s taking them. This course will provide nurses with information on how to improve management of patients receiving oral chemotherapy.
Providing Optimal Care for Patients with Central Catheters
Central catheters can be confusing. To help clarify this important topic, this course provides nurses with information that will help them better care for patients with central lines. The course compares the various types of central catheters and explains how to identify, care for, and maintain them. Although central catheters used in pediatric patients are similar to those used in adults, this course focuses on adults.
