Episode 208: How to Have Fertility Preservation Conversations With Your Patients

Talking to patients about how their cancer and treatment affects their fertility can be challenging and complicated for oncology nurses, but we owe it to our patients to have those conversations. Megan Solinger, MHS, MA, OPN-CG, director of service and care delivery at the Ulman Foundation in Baltimore, MD, joins Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, to offer guidance, ideas, and advice that will prepare you to confidently approach those essential and ethical discussions. Megan presented the topic at the 47th Annual ONS Congress® in Anaheim, CA, on April 28, 2022.
