Hello Autumn, Your patient’s Stage II Hodgkin lymphoma was treated with radiation and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy causes systemic side effects, whereas radiation therapy causes specific side effects that are limited to the area being irradiated ( Hinkle & Cheever,2014). The cause of Hodgkin lymphoma is unknown, but a viral etiology is suspected ( Hinkle & Cheever,2014). Your first intervention deals with educating the patient on how to eliminate risk factors from his/her daily lives. The nurse should encourage patients to reduce other factors that increase the risk of developing second cancer, such as the use of tobacco and alcohol and exposure to environmental carcinogens and excessive sunlight ( Hinkle & Cheever, 2014). I do believe your intervention of educating the patient on risk factor is appropriate for this patient and family because due to his age he will need help understanding all the information need it to survive.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
