chapter  8
The nature of nurse-led clinics in oncology
ByCAROLE FARRELL
Pages 41

This chapter will be divided into different sections covering the core treatments in oncology, and also the development of nurse-led clinics to improve services for patients. This will be based on a review of the literature covering surgical, chemotherapy and radiotherapy nurse-led clinics, together with practical examples from clinical practice. There will also be additional sections on nurse-led follow-up clinics and nurse-led clinics for patients on clinical trials. However I would like to begin this chapter by sharing my own experience of developing and running several nurse-led clinics over the past ten years.
