Advanced nursing care of the surgical cancer patient

Surgery remains the mainstay for the treatment of most solid cancers.  Almost all cancer patients will have some form of surgery whether it is biopsy only or definitive resection.  The event or events of surgery for the cancer sufferer have to be carefully planned, expertly executed and painstakingly followed up.  Veterinary nurses play crucial roles during every step.
My fantastic surgical nursing team have provided me input from their hands-on experience working with surgical cancer patients every day.  This has allowed me to deliver this session from the nurse perspective and I will use case examples.

**Nurse Congress Proceedings will be available on a USB in your congress bag
