Abstract:
Administration/Leadership Development: The Scope of oncology nursing practice involves leadership that includes sharing research and projects that contribute to the evidence base of oncology nursing practice. A collaborative clinical and research nurse Professional Practice Work Group created a professional development matrix beginning with the research/ project, followed by abstract development, presentation, and culminating with a peer reviewed publication. This abstract provides an overview of the program established to address the writing and presentation phases of the matrix. The program provides a collaborative, centralized senior staff mentoring program to enhance oncology nurse professional development by fostering skills in abstract writing, poster development and presentation at national nursing meetings. The multi-phased intervention consists of support for abstract development followed by peer review critiques of accepted abstracts. Phase 1, Creativity, Abstract Preparation, Support and Snacks (CAPSS) involves an open house to facilitate optimal participation. CAPSS assigns experienced mentors to assist nurses in exploring research and projects that are novel, relevant and ready to disseminate. CAPSS participants are also provided with abstract writing resources. Phase 2, Practice, Peer review, Posters and Pastries (4PÆs) offers the opportunity for nurses with accepted abstracts to receive peer review and detailed critiques of posters and podium presentations. Since the programs inception, 100% of abstracts have been accepted with 50% podium presentations, 50% posters and one peer-reviewed manuscript publication. Evaluations reveal that all strongly agreed or agreed that the program provided them with the ability to identify a potential topic to further develop into an abstract and describe the components of as well as steps involved in the process. Nurses reported that they enjoyed interactions with colleagues and valued the resources and mentoring provided. Presenters at the 4PÆs all reported the experience was invaluable to improve the quality of their poster or presentation. This program represents a novel mechanism to facilitate dissemination of evidence to the nursing community in addition to promoting collegiality and individual professional development. This provides a model collaborative program to support evidence sharing, an essential component of oncology nursing practice. The programs next phase involves establishing a mechanism for developing abstracts into peer reviewed publications.
