As a role model in cancer education, you are responsible for developing, assessing, implementing, and evaluating patient, significant other, and public education programs. The Standards of Oncology Education: Patient/Significant Other and Public (Fourth Edition) provides you with comprehensive guidelines you need for these formal and informal educational programs. The standards in this edition are descriptive statements designed to guide you as you strive to achieve quality cancer education. Consistent with the American Nurses Association (ANA) Standards for Nursing Professional Development, the format includes categories devoted to oncology nurses, patients and their significant others, the public, resources, curricula, and the teaching-learning process.
