Cancer is defined as the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells, resulting in tumors that can be either benign or malignant (Linton, 2016). Patients and their families are often stressed, sad, and anxious because they fear the unknown. Thus, it is our responsibility as nurses to provide education on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.
For this week’s discussion we will look closely at our individually assigned topics and write a response according to the posted rubric that is attached to your course syllabus.
Please include each of the following components for full credit:
-Reflect on your assigned topic, select a specific type of community for educational outreach, and present the most important information that should be incorporated onto a flyer for these patients. The material should be written in simple terms so that your patient can understand. Be specific.
