This section addresses how different groups—oncologists, patients, and Nurses—think about end-of-life care issues. This section discusses an oncologist’s responsibility and perspective when it comes to difficult subjects such as advanced cancer, hospice, do not resuscitate orders,cytotoxic therapy, supportive care, maintaining a patient’s dignity, and imminent death. Articles in this series also discuss the role of spirituality and religion at the time of death, and the importance of good communication between the oncologist and family members throughout the dying process.Oncology nurses practice in a variety of settings including acute care hospitals, ambulatory care clinics, private oncologists’ offices, radiation therapy facilities, home healthcare agencies, and community agencies. The roles of the oncology nurses vary from the intensive care focus of bone marrow transplantation to the community focus of cancer screening, detection, and prevention. Health promotion includes motivating people to embrace behaviors that both improve their emotional and physical quality of life and reduce their risk for premature morbidity and mortality. Although the majority of adults treated for cancer in the United States live free of disease for many years, many survivors experience lasting side effects and complications of treatment. Others encounter recurrences or new cancers that require additional treatment. Late effects vary from one cancer survivor to the next. They can range from very mild to serious. Medical experts can’t always predict if or when they will occur. Some effects might improve or go away with time such as anemia. Patients with advanced cancer are willing to pay more for all aspects of a good end-of-life experience compared with healthy older adults. Both groups are willing to pay more to be pain free and to die at home. This Session Includes Cancer Genetics: Genetic Counseling, Ethical Issues, and the Nurse’s Role, Health Promotion, Late Effects of Cancer Treatment and Long-Term Survivorship Issues,End-of-Life Issues, Psychological and Family Issues, Nursing-Sensitive Patient Outcomes, Translation Science, Cancer Epidemiology, Palliative Care
