Title:
QUESTION OF THE DAY: AN EDUCATIONAL INTERVENTION TO ASSIST IN IMPROVING SPECIALTY KNOWLEDGE ASSIMILATION BY NOVICE NURSES

Abstract:
The complexity of care on an acute care inpatient unit at a tertiary referral teaching hospital is frequently intimidating to the novice nurse. Competing time pressures of providing care while trying to continue to expand their knowledge base has been cited by novice nurses as a factor frequently associated with dissatisfaction and decisions to leave the bedside. This is further complicated by the rapid pace of change in oncology care as new medications and treatment regimen are discovered or evolve. This project involves a ôjust in timeö educational intervention on a daily basis to assist the unit team in learning new information or reinforcing previously discussed concepts on a hematology unit at a large Midwestern teaching hospital. A Masters-prepared RN on a daily basis receives report on all patients in the area, and constructs and delivers a one to five minute inservice to the team present at that report. The questions addressed are compiled, and on a weekly basis distributed via an email distribution list to interested nurses within the organization at large on a voluntary basis. Current research topics are able to be included because the project coordinator is a member of the medical specialty research committee. Over half of the inpatient hematology/oncology/BMT nursing staff at the organization across multiple nursing units have voluntarily subscribed to the electronic distribution list. With the increasing pace of change in the scientific basis of oncology nursing practice and the improved availability of electronic communications platforms, novel methods of information distribution may assist in keeping oncology nurses informed about cutting edge topics.
