Our video series “The Confident Patient in a New World” explores conversations with medical professionals and health experts about the challenges of patients and their caregivers, given the complex and evolving ecosystem of healthcare.

Terri O’Brien, nurse practitioner at Rush University Cancer Center, explores the best ways caregivers can work with medical teams to care for their loved ones with cancer. Terri shares her first-hand experiences with patients and their families at the Cancer Center Urgent Care, and reflects on some of the unique challenges and complexities those with cancer are facing, especially during Covid-19. She explains the importance of comprehensive care for those with cancer, and how those patients coming into the urgent care have unique cases, requiring specialized care, even in an urgent situation.
