If you suffer from chronic urinary tract infections, also known as UTIs, or interstitial cystitis, you know how difficult it can be to deal with the symptoms of bladder pain and discomfort. While diets, supplements, and medications are often used, few are aware of the important connection between biofilms and interstitial cystitis. Today we are talking with Ruth Kriz all about biofilms and why you should know about them. Ruth Kriz is a nurse practitioner who specializes in treating chronic UTI and interstitial cystitis patients. Her interest in biofilms, genetics, and mycotoxins developed through her discovery of an association between those factors and chronic UTIs and interstitial cystitis. Please enjoy our conversation that explores the world of biofilms, how they impact our health, and what you can do about biofilms that might be impacting your interstitial cystitis and UTIs.

“Nurses can bridge the information gap and help patients better understand that the information received from next-generation sequencing (NGS) can really help to determine which treatment they will respond best to, if there are therapies that won't be effective, or if there are clinical trials that are open to them based on the results,” Danielle Fournier, RN, MSN, APRN, AGPCNP-BC, AOCNP®, CORLN, advanced practice RN in the department of thoracic surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, told Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS. Fournier discussed the advancements being made in NGS technology and how it can be used to care for patients with cancer. This episode was produced by ONS and sponsored by Foundation Medicine.

Highlights From Today's Episode “With next-generation sequencing (NGS), multiple biomarkers can be evaluated using one test. So, in cancer care, we're learning that any given tumor may harbor a variety of variants. So, if we're considering using in situ hybridization (ISH) or fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to identify biomarkers, multiple assays may be needed and may need to be performed in order to test for multiple variants.” Timestamp (TS) 10:21 “There are multiple testing strategies that can be used with NGS technology, which is kind of what makes it so versatile. What type of testing is most appropriate really depends on the patient's risk factors, their diagnosis, their cancer stage, what testing has previously been completed, and what tissue is available for analysis.” TS 12:00 “Within oncology care, there is a role for NGS in the identification and management of both solid tumors and hematologic cancers, and this role is likely just going to continue to expand. So, really there's been an increased focus on genomic pharmacotherapy and targeted therapy, and this is playing an ever-greater role in the treatment of cancer. So, NGS will really continue to serve as a means to take a closer look at a patient's cancer at the molecular level and hopefully match patients with treatments that will be most effective at treating their cancer.” TS 20:54 “In reality, there's an expanding role for NGS testing in the diagnosis of many complex diseases. So, I think more than likely what we're going to see is that the indications and utility of NGS is only going to continue to grow in both the oncology setting as well as the non-oncology setting.” TS 23:08 “The oncology nurse really plays a key role in several important steps along the way. The first place they may be involved is in the informed consent process. Many—but not all—hospitals require patients to sign consent for genetic and genomic testing and this is just acknowledging that the patient is making an informed and autonomous decision related to their health care. Nurses may also play a role in the collection of a tissue sample or blood sample. And once testing has been completed, nurses may play a role in discussing the NGS results with patients.” TS 24:03 “Nurses really can help to somewhat bridge this information gap and help patients better understand that the information received from NGS can really help to determine which treatment they will respond best to, if there are therapies that won't be effective, or if there are clinical trials that are open to them based on the results. And these are all really important considerations for cancer treatment.” TS 36:21

Highlights From Today's Episode Garner: “Obtaining a PhD in nursing has always been a goal since I entered my initial program, because I've had the goal to always teach and give back to nurses. I am the first person in my family to obtain a PhD and was encouraged by my family to acquire more education. They didn't necessarily say, ‘You need to get a PhD,' but rather, ‘Get the education you need to fulfill your life goals,' and I've really seeded that throughout my lifetime.” Timestamp (TS) 06:30 Geddie: “Sometimes it is difficult to receive honest feedback, but it is much appreciated. . . . When honest feedback is given from a sincere and authentic perspective, you grow and develop so much from it.” TS 09:42 Nevidjon: “As board members, you also give feedback to one another. That is part of the board experience. When a new board member comes on, there is a ‘board buddy' who is assigned, and then there are check-ins in terms of how things are going, what kinds of experiences [there are]. We embrace that in terms of the board experience.” TS 10:03 Garner: “Mentorship is a great opportunity for growth and self-reflection. I believe that mentorship is a continual journey. There is so much to learn from others as well as impart what you have learned to others.” TS 10:53 Nevidjon: “The path to a national board isn't necessarily just within that organization itself, but the total kind of experiences that you bring.” TS 14:07 Geddie: “When I began my oncology nursing career, I could always identify gaps where improvement was needed to enhance the daily practice of nurses in the acute care setting. I could not make a difference to improve practice while providing direct care every day, so I decided to pursue a master's degree for the clinical nurse specialist. And this role allowed me not only to stay close to clinical practice but to also drive improvements in the healthcare system in which we worked.” TS 18:14
