There are many seminars available to oncology nurses. They vary from proper nutrition for cancer patients to providing palliative care. A good example, of an important seminar is one such as the one titled Effects of Exercise on quality of life in women living with Breast Cancer. This seminar would be very useful to an oncology nurse assisting and treating a woman with Breast Cancer.
Trials have shown that moderate exercise in women with Breast Cancer has a positive influence on their quality of life. Another important seminar for oncology nurses would be The British Pain Society’s Pain Management. The purpose of this seminar is to identify cancer related pain and to optimize the pain management for the patient. Nutrition in children and young people with cancer is another seminar available.
This seminar is about the proper nutrition in children and young people with cancer, proper nutrition is a major factor in aiding the resistance of infections and maintaining proper body functions and the ability to develop and grow. Families play an important role in the nutrition of their children and youth living with cancer. Sometimes there are special diets and supplements designed by the medical staff that have to be followed for maximum quality of their nutrition.
These are just examples of the types of seminars that oncology nurses can make use of and the different ways they can be of benefit to them. Some seminars deal with general topics while others deal with specifics. Most often nurses specializing in cancer can always find a seminar that will be of value to them. It often helps to refresh their approach to patient care and they can be a form of encouragement.
