Brachytherapy Patient Coordination 101: What Can Nurses Do?

February 26, 2024 | 10:00 AM Eastern

Organized by Kayla Kafka-Peterson, ABS Nursing Sub-Committee Council of the Education and Tranining Council

Join Kayla Kafka-Peterson, BSN and Laine Zaide, PA-C  on February 26 at 10:00 am Eastern for a webinar on brachytherapy patient coordination is intended for nurses as well as others on brachytherapy teams, including physicians. It will focus heavily on coordination of care for gynecologic and prostate interstitial brachytherapy, including timing procedures with other therapies, comorbidity management and other patient considerations. Preoperative patient education will also be addressed.

Nurses can play a central role in patient coordination prior to brachytherapy in addition to providing immediate patient care on the day of their treatment. On many new brachytherapy teams, the physician assumes much of the coordination role and often finds they start to get overwhelmed with balancing patient coordination with their normal clinical practice. This role can be transitioned to a strong nurse that becomes familiar with treatment guidelines and timelines. In transitioning this role to a central individual, brachytherapy teams can become more organized and efficient, and physicians can be freed up to focus on growing their practice.

Strong brachytherapy patient coordination can allow for increased case volume, increased safety and streamlining, and increased patient satisfaction. 

Please join us for this great webinar for brachytherapy nurses and all brachytherapy team members!
