Abstract

The treatment of patients with gastric cancer requires a multidisciplinary clinical perspective in which the nurse plays a very important role. Caring for the gastric cancer patient poses enormous challenges to the nurse, requires constant scientific updating and evidence-based practice, as well as a strong patient/family involvement, making him/his family an active participant throughout the process.
