Pam DeLongchamp, BSN, RN, OCN, holds the nurse-patient relationship in the highest regard. In her role as a proton therapy nurse navigator in the Radiation-Oncology-Proton Therapy program at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., she is fortunate to be able to spend time with her patients, supporting them as they face both physical and emotional challenges while in her care.
DeLongchamp spoke to Nurse.com about proton therapy and specifically about Hyperscan — the latest form of proton pencil beam scanning. She talked about her role and responsibilities and the value of patient and family education at the center.
