Cancer can be a complex disease to manage and treat. Many treatment plans arecustomized to fit the patient’s needs. A Family Nurse Practitioner needs to know and understandenough about cancer diagnosis and metastatic disease to be able to create a treatment plan. Forthis reflection, I will focus on developing the treatment plan and selecting appropriate diagnostictests, medications, and other treatments. My strengths in this area are developing the treatmentplan and ordering diagnostic testing. I felt like my treatment plan was similar to the expert’streatment plan in the virtual encounter. I missed a few diagnostic tests but could determinemultiple correct tests. My opportunities for growth regarding these topics would be prescribingmedications and other treatments. Cancer treatment plans can be very extensive as there arevarious ways to treat the disease. Chemotherapy and radiation are two treatments we hear offrequently. Educating myself on different cancer medications and treatment therapies will allowme to provide the best care for my patients.
