Abstract :

The incidence and prevalence of cancer is ever increasing. Broadly, oncology can be divided into diagnostic and therapeutic oncology. Furthermore, there are numerous subcategories under these two broad subdivisions. The modern oncology scene now includes a wide range of treatment modalities for cancer patients, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and others. These have matured as highly complex subspecialties, requiring high level of medical and nursing expertise. Once of the pivotal roles in the oncology arena is played by the by a specialist nurse in a high input oncology subspecialty such as Breast Oncology, and this will be discussed in detail during the talk. The role of the Oncology nurses can be complex and varied, involving interventions and communication with multiple health care professionals across primary and secondary care and other private and charitable organisations. Their contribution improves the quality and experience of care for patients, reinforces patient safety, demonstrates leadership and can increase productivity and efficiency. Oncology nurses treat and manage the health concerns of patients and work to promote health and wellbeing in the patients they care for. They integrate knowledge of cancer and medical treatments into assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of patients' problems and concerns. These will be elaborated during the presentation and more discussion with audience interactive participation would be most welcome
