Clinical depression often is overlooked by healthcare providers when treating patients with cancer. Oncology nurses are in a pivotal position to assess for depression, communicate any changes in emotional status to the oncology treatment team, and offer support and education to patients and families. This article discusses the symptoms of depression and the available treatment options.
