“What does the patient need to know? What are their knowledge gaps? What are they most in need of? Once you determine the areas you need to pinpoint, branded or nonbranded, then there’s resources out there for you to use,” Chelsea Backler, MSN, APRN, AGCNS-BC, AOCNS®, VA-BC, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, told Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS. Backler explained the differences between branded and nonbranded patient education resources, ways for oncology nurses to identify credible resources, and ONS’s Seal of Approval Program for branded and nonbranded resources.
