Clinical Oncology News reported on a study presented at the inaugural Palliative Care in Oncology Symposium, which examined the financial and work challenges cancer patients often face. The article explains the importance of this research:
“‘Cancer survivors are at increased risk for financial hardship,’ said the study’s lead author, Robin Whitney, RN, a doctoral student at the University of California, Davis, Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, in Sacramento. ‘There is an urgent need for screening and support for financial and work challenges across the cancer survivorship trajectory, from diagnosis to long-term survivorship.’
Ms. Whitney has a personal interest in survivorship, as a non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivor.”
