Nursing Management of Bone Health in Patients With Cancer

STATEMENT OF NEED Many tumors, such as prostate, breast, lung, and multiple myeloma, affect bone health. Once cancer spreads to the skeletal system, the risk for pain, fractures, hypercalcemia, and nerve compression increases considerably. Several studies have shown that the use of antiresorptive agents such as bisphosphonates and monoclonal antibodies can reduce the morbidity of skeletal complications in patients with cancer and significantly improve quality of life. Combined with preventi...

Although many women benefit from regular screening as well as earlier and improved treatment, approximately 10% present with metastatic disease, and 30% with no initial lymph node involvement eventually develop metastatic disease. Women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) have a poorer prognosis than the overall pop...
