“The nurse is kind of the hub of a spoked wheel. You have your pharmacy and your provider all on the outside edge, but it’s the nurse that’s connecting all of these different support services together and being the main connection for the patient,” ONS member Elizabeth Bettencourt, RN, MSN, OCN®, oral oncolytic nurse navigator at Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Sunnyvale, CA, and member of the Silicon Valley ONS Chapter, said. Bettencourt joined Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, for a discussion on how oncology nurses can support their patients in adherence to oral anticancer medications.
