BTOG 2018 | Next steps for nurse-led rapid access lung cancer clinic in Wales
The role of the nurse in the management and care of patients with cancer is essential one, which is evolving both nationally and internationally. One example of this expanding role is the creation of nurse-led cancer clinics. In this interview, Clinical Nurse Specialist Sarah Morgan, of Hywel Dda University Health Board, Carmarthen, UK, discusses the nurse-led rapid access lung cancer clinic she recently set up in Ceredigion, Wales. Sarah discusses the positive feedback from patients so far, highlighting the support, education and continuity they can receive throughout the cancer pathway. She also discusses future steps for the project, including evaluation, following a grant award from the National Lung Cancer Forum for Nurses (NLCFN). This video was recorded at the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG) Annual Conference 2018, held in Dublin, Ireland.
