Title:Provincial Program Leader, Palliative Care/Symptom Management
Oncology nurses indicate that their primary learning needs relate to current developments in symptom management. Barriers to currency include: a) a rapid proliferation of new knowledge; b) the lack of time to focus on literature review for new evidence; and c) the paucity of mechanisms to deliver ôbite-sizedö relevant education to nurses practising in a busy workplace. To address this expressed need of the nurses in our organization, and to those practising in the rural communities of our province, a Just-in-Time EvidencedûBased Symptom Management course was designed. The course features eight different symptom management modules which are offered on-line with a paper based back up for nurses who lack computer capacity. Each module describes the latest evidence-based interventions, linking the intervention to the relevant research and/or systematic review; provides an opportunity for ongoing learning with the education nurses at our organization, and provides a further opportunity for a case-based application with the organizationÆs symptom management teams. Nurses are encouraged to take post-tests for each of the modules, and the results are tabulated with recognition given for both the completion of the program and for the highest overall score for the program. This presentation will describe the innovative education intervention, detail its implementation, present the results of its evaluation, and explore how this program can be adopted to other agencies, and to other areas of clinical knowledge.
