Pediatric hematology/oncology nurses are responsible for the comprehensive care of children with diverse and complex medical conditions, including both non-malignant and malignant diseases. For reasons related to both underlying disease pathology as well as treatment-related toxicities, this unique patient population is at risk of developing a wide spectrum of oral complications that can significantly impact patients.
As front-line clinicians, nurses must possess the knowledge and skills to be able to effectively triage and manage the oral health needs of their patients. This educational session will provide a foundational overview of the most common and clinically important oral conditions encountered in pediatric hematology/oncology clinical practice.
