UKONS 2021 | Optimizing cancer services for patients with dementia

Naomi Farrington, RN, MA, PhD, PgDip, University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Southampton, UK, provides an overview on how cancer services can be more responsive to patients with dementia. Dr Farrington highlights the need for assessing the needs and outcomes of the patients themselves as well as their caregivers, and convincing patients that their expectations will be sufficiently met. Staff additionally require the resources and capacity to successfully deliver personalized care adapted to the specific needs of the patient. This interview took place at the United Kingdom Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) Annual Conference 2021.
