This case study highlights the patient’s status in care plan format and is followed by commentaries from expert nurse clinicians about their approach to manage the patient’s long-term or chronic cancer care symptoms. Finally, an additional expert nurse clinician summarizes the care plan and commentaries, emphasizing takeaways about the patient, the commentaries, and additional recommendations to manage the patient. As can happen in clinical practice, the patient’s care plan is intentionally incomplete and does not include all pertinent information. Responding to an incomplete care plan, the nurse clinicians offer comprehensive strategies to manage the patient’s status and symptoms. For all commentaries, each clinician reviewed the care plan and did not review each other’s commentary. The summary commentary speaks to the patient’s status, care plan, and nurse commentaries.
