Abstract:
Administration/Leadership Development: The development and implementation of Multidisciplinary Disease Management Programs featuring Care Coordination are a goal of community based cancer programs. Care Coordination and Patient Navigation have become a focus for the National Quality Forum and the National Breast Accreditation Program/ American College of Surgeons for 2009. Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners (FCCCP), a subsidiary of spend time at FCCC as well as at FCCCP institutions shadowing seasoned breast care coordinators. The orientation manual was piloted with three new nurse navigators over the course of 2008, and outcomes were reviewed via post needs assessment survey. Results indicated significant increase in understanding navigator role in breast cancer care. Next step will be conversion to web based CNE program that can be updated with current trends and evidenced based practice. Oncology Nursing sets the tone for many new disease specific programs or centers of excellence. It is essential that we not only promote the development of nursing expertise but also provide the education, clinical competencies and resources to nurses as these new roles emerge. Fox Chase Cancer Center (FCCC), is a consortium of community hospitals working with an NCI academic cancer center. FCCCP Breast Care Coordinator/Navigator group has evolved from a small core group of six coordinators to twenty in four years. This group saw a need to provide nurses new to the role of coordinator/navigator with tools and resources to assist with transitioning from various practice backgrounds to the role of a nurse navigator. Building on the creativity and expertise of this group an orientation manual was developed to support role development and clinical care required for breast cancer patients along the continuum of care. In addition to this valuable tool, a formal preceptorship that provides a menu of clinical experiences has evolved. The orientation manual was created in module format to allow the navigator to focus areas of most need. It was designed as annotated bibliographies including the most current literature searches and web sites. Prior to using the manual, the nurse navigator completes a needs assessment that provides an overview of gaps in knowledge and expertise.
