I agree in having a good understanding on the topics to be very important when in interpreting although be careful when interpreting in adding more than what the provider is saying. If a patient doesn’t understand is their job to explain to the pt and for you to interpret that explanation, dont take it into your own hands.
as far as oncology I agree with the emotional aspect. It takes practice and focus to be able to get through a session without shedding a tear but you are also a human being and not a robot so its ok to be compassionate yet professional.
