Abstract:
Purpose: In an oncology infusion center, the logistics of relationship-based nursing are time- and personnel-intensive due to variabilities in patients' and nurses' schedules. However, this model is valued and viewed by oncology nurses as the best means to deliver high quality nursing care. Existing literature on nursing care delivery methods are outdated and inconclusive. The purposes of this study are to evaluate oncology patients' perceptions of quality nursing care and to determine the extent to which perceptions of nursing care are influenced by the nursing care delivery model. Theoretical Framework: Radwin's midrange theory of high quality nursing care among oncology patients provides the theoretical framework. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): A cross-sectional survey design will be used. After human subject's approval, a research assistant will administer surveys in the waiting area of an infusion center. The medical record will provide additional information. The sampling frame is comprised of one thousand patients who receive care at the oncology infusion center. With 84 participants per group, it will be possible to detect a moderate effect with 90% power. A 60-chair, oncology infusion center, situated in a large, tertiary care and Magnet hospital in the northeast will be the setting for this study. Two self-report measures, the Outpatient Perceptions of Quality Nursing Care Scale and the Outcomes Scale, along with a demographics form will be completed by participants. Continuity of Care Index, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group scores, medical and nursing information will be extracted from the participants' medical records. Descriptive statistics, scale reliabilities, correlations, ANOVA, and multiple regressions are planned. Results: An overall quality statistic will be obtained for the center. In addition, findings will suggest whether relationship-based nursing care influences participants' perceptions of quality nursing care. Conclusions and Implications: Research findings that support relationship-based nursing care may help to preserve the art of oncology nursing in an era of shrinking outpatient margins.
