Anne-Elizabeth Murphy - Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, Switzerland

Anne-Elizabeth Murphy, an oncology nurse at Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, Switzerland, talks to ecancer at the European Oncology Nursing Society annual meeting in Geneva, April 2012.

Ms Murphy discusses the importance of nurses being aware of the genetics behind cancer as most treatment is now tailored to the genome of the patient. Nurses have to explain to patients why certain treatments may not apply due to genetics.

Education in basic and post-graduate levels can achieve better communication between patient and nurse and also increased awareness at diagnosis.
