General Issues in Cancer Nursing

One of the main challenges nurses face is collaborating with the many different organisations in the field of oncology. In addition to the difficulty of monitoring and educating patients who receive treatment in the out-patient setting. when informing or not becomes a dilemma- showing the main difficulties related to oncological treatment information regarding health staff, health system, and infrastructure; to invest or not - dilemmas related to finitude - showing situations of dilemmas related to pain and confrontation with finitude.  It is important to invest in the training of these professionals, preparing them in an ethical and human way to act as lawyers of the patient with cancer, in a context of dilemmas related mainly to the possibility of finitude. Part of their role is to listen to the emotional concerns and anxieties of the patient and refer them appropriately if needed.
