Role of the Nurse

The nurse is a key part of the treatment program and plays a major role in patient education regarding topics such as medication, diet, sleep, hygiene, and sexual activity. Another nursing function is assisting patients in the practice of newly learned skills, assessing medication response, and acting as a focal point of communication to coordinate patient care. The role of the nurse varies with their skills and the interaction with other providers. Since the nurses tend to be with patients throughout their active treatment course, they are a focal point for continuity in the treatment program.
