Cancer nursing research is aimed at developing or discovering knowledge to inform nursing practice. Cancer supportive care is one of the most disciplines engaged in improving the lives of patients with cancer and their families. Cancer Nursing is instrumental in educating patients about these treatment options and managing their individual toxicities during treatment. It plays a crucial part in supporting ongoing communication between patients and the multidisciplinary team. To succeed in this role, nurses require a thorough understanding of evidence-based symptom-management programs, and a good awareness of the efficacy and safety profiles of newer drugs. Time should be set aside for nurses to be educated and trained appropriately on topics identified in this review, and initiatives such as local myeloma learning programs may be useful.
