Cancer and Oncology Q 55

In the client with terminal lung cancer, the focus of nursing care is on which of the following nursing interventions?
    A. Prepare the client’s will
    B. Provide pain control
    C. Provide nutritional support
    D. Provide emotional support

Correct Answer: B. Provide pain control

Option B: The client with terminal lung cancer may have extreme pleuritic pain and should be treated to reduce his discomfort therefore improving the quality of life of the patient. Examples of pain medication used with advanced cancer are opioids such as morphine, oxycodone, fentanyl, or methadone.

Option A: Nursing care doesn’t focus on helping the client prepare the will.
Option D: Preparing the client and his family for the impending death and providing emotional support is also important but shouldn’t be the primary focus until the pain is under control.
Option C: Nutritional support may be provided, but as the terminal phase advances, the client’s nutritional needs greatly decrease.
