Interview with Lea Ann Biafora, MS, RN, OCN, CCM, CPHQ of Beacon Oncology Nurse Advocates,

Interview with Lea Ann Biafora, MS, RN, OCN, CCM, CPHQ of Beacon Oncology Nurse Advocates,"Being a patient advocate is one of the primary roles of a bedside nurse. However, bedside nurses often experience stumbling blocks when advocating for their patients that are associated with the polices, procedures, and politics of hospital/corporate nursing. So, patient advocacy representatives were developed.
However, if a patient desires a personal patient centered healthcare experience then they might elect to consult with their own private patient advocacy service opposed to a corporate employed patient advocate. Enter Lea Ann Biafora, MS, RN, OCN, CCM, CPHQ a nurse entrepreneur who founded Beacon Oncology Nurse Advocates.
Her advice to nurse entrepreneurs is "If you are interested in starting a business (driven by your nursing knowledge) become knowledgeable within your focused area, be confident that you are knowledgeable in this area, be humble but strong and raise your head high."
