What do I need to know about caring for someone with lung cancer?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
In caring for a person with lung cancer, it is important to remember the effects the disease has, both physical and psychological. People with lung cancer may need help accomplishing daily tasks such as preparing meals, getting dressed, or running errands. They may also need help dealing with side effects of treatment such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, as well as pain and difficulty breathing. It is also important to talk to somebody with cancer, as well as listen. Just being available and providing company can help reduce the anxiety related to the disease.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
