Oncology Nurses Society On LFS

General information on Li Fraumeni Syndrome is comparatively rare, which is frustrating when you're trying to explain what it is to a doctor, nurse or other medical profession, let alone family and friends. However, the journal ONS Connect, published by the Oncology Nursing Society, have published a five-minute introduction to Li Fraumeni Syndrome.

Obviously aimed at the oncology nurse, it covers a reasonable level of detail and describes the current state of the art when it comes to the condition. If you need to point your nurse or doctor to a source that they can trust, then point them at this article:

And of course, point them to http://www.tp53.co.uk as well...
