While oncologic complications of disease and treatment are common in the acute care oncology setting, many can be avoided with careful monitoring and early intervention. Review a model for anticipating and monitoring complications of disease and treatment. Through case-based examples, you’ll identify conditions, such as sepsis, cardiac rhythm, and hemorrhagic cystitis, in which nurse-sensitive outcomes can influence the patient’s experience. Discover the risk groups, prevention strategies, and early intervention required for a quick response.
