An overview of home care for patients with cancer.

Author information

Skilled Nursing Homecare, Inc., Flourtown, PA.


This article describes some of the restrictions and obstacles that patients with cancer may face in home care. Though discharge from the hospital to home can be overwhelming and frightening, nurses and other healthcare professionals can assist the patient and caregiver to ensure a smooth transition. Issues such as treatment options, reimbursement, quality assurance, legal issues, and need for research are addressed with the purpose of providing guidance and direction for practitioners in all settings involved with patients with cancer who are in need of nursing care in their homes.
