Abstract:
Administration/Leadership Development: NCIÆs Cooperative Group Program is designed to promote and support research to advance the science of cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. Although there are many nurses active within the 1,700 cooperative group institutions, few nurse scientists have successfully taken research concepts from development to implementation within the cooperative groups. In 2005, ONS Foundation announced a plan for facilitating multi-site research which included collaborations with cooperative groups. A workshop for nurse investigators new to cooperative group research was developed. The goals were to foster nurse-led interdisciplinary research within cooperative groups and facilitate the development of research concepts by interdisciplinary teams. The purpose of this presentation is to outline the training program and present 2 year post-training survey results including the progress of the interdisciplinary teams, barriers to concept approval, and strategies for success. The three day workshop was held in October, 2006. Interdisciplinary members from five NCI cooperative groups (COG, GOG, NCCTG, CALGB, RTOG) met to train nurse investigators on the structure and process of cooperative groups. Each interdisciplinary team, led by a nurse investigator, worked to develop research concepts for their respective cooperative groups. Over the next two years, each team worked to obtain concept approval. Two years post-training, three concepts have been approved with two receiving full-protocol approval. Two teams are working to obtain pilot data prior to concept submission. All participating nurse investigators reported helpful support from their team; none would have proposed a cooperative group concept without the training. Barriers included balancing the timing of cooperative group approval processes with proposals for external funding, and negotiating the cooperative group culture. Successful strategies included having a well-developed research plan prior to concept submission, pro-active communication with cooperative group administration, and the commitment of a key cooperative group team member to champion the concept. The NCI Cooperative Groups provide tremendous opportunity to conduct multi-site trials to advance the science of oncology nursing. Understanding the cooperative group concept approval process is critical for nurse scientists. The ONS foundation multisite research training program was successful in providing nurse led interdisciplinary teams with the resources to navigate this complex research environment.
