Educating Patients to Ensure the Best MPN Care

Erin H. Blackwell

Erin H. Blackwell, R.N., B.S.N., O.C.N., oncology nurse and 2016 MPN Hero, discusses what to discuss with newly diagnosed patients with MPNs to ensure the best possible care.

Some aspects that must be considered include quality of life, symptom management and the patient's social situation to craft the best, personalized care plan. Also, since many people do not know much about MPNs, Blackwell helps educate patients and their families about this type of blood cancer.
