BOPA 2018 | The role of the oncology nurse in improving patient care

In this video, Catherine Oakley, PhD, of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, stresses the important role that oncology nurses play in helping provide holistic care for patients and their families, including meeting their psychological and emotional needs. Speaking at the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) Annual Symposium 2018, held in Birmingham, UK, Ms Oakley brings light to the changing role of oncology nurses in the future as we see more patients being diagnosed with cancer, and how nursing teams and dedicated specialist helplines can help deliver immediate support to patients.
