Carmi Fazio on End-of-Life Cancer Care

Carmi Fazio, RN, MSN, ONA

Carmi Fazio, RN, BSN, ONA, Molina Healthcare, discusses nurses’ role in end-of-life care.

While end-of-life care seems like a taboo subject that not many people want to deal with, it is very important and a field in which nurses can take the lead, advocate for and truly help their patients. For example, Fazio declared herself a DNR (do not resuscitate) patient in 2008 so that some of her patients may feel more comfortable issuing the decision for themselves. Fazio sees no downside to patients choosing or refusing to fight.
