Dowling, Maura, Kelly, Mary, & Meenaghan, Teresa. (2013). Promoting quality of life for patients with myeloma. Cancer Nursing Practice, 12(8), 30-37. doi: 10.7748/cnp2013.10.12.8.30.e994
This article aims to provide nurses with an update of best practice in caring for patients living with a diagnosis of myeloma. Targeted treatments for myeloma have resulted in extended survival for patients. However, extended survival results in disease- and treatment-related side effects that have a profound effect on patients’ quality of life. Nurses can support patients to manage their illness and treatment, and promote an improved quality of life.
