ASCO 2017 | Caring for cancer patients throughout the course of treatment

Hendrik-Tobias Arkenau

Hendrik-Tobias Arkenau, MD, PhD, from the Sarah Cannon Research Institute, Nashville, TN, talks to us about personalised therapy for cancer patients, specifically the need for doctors to ensure that patients are informed of the effects of their treatment, such as the associated side effects, toxicities and potential biopsies. He adds that it is important to encourage the formation of strong relationships between patients and specialist nurses and doctors to help them throughout the course of their treatment. This interview was filmed at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2017 Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.
