“When we think about how oncology nurses can really be helpful in overcoming barriers to care, it comes back to what we do very well—which is getting to know our patients,” David Rice, PhD, MSN, RN, NP, NEA-BC, chief nurse of research and development at the Greater Los Angeles VA Medical Center in California said during his conversation with Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS. David and Stephanie discussed the nursing considerations for LGBTQIA+ patients with cancer and how nurses can help overcome barriers and eliminate disparities during all stages of the cancer continuum. David facilitated a panel discussion on the topic at the 47th Annual ONS Congress® in Anaheim, CA, on April 29, 2022.
