Abstract:
This poster describes the Clinical Nurse SpecialistÆs leadership role in building an oncology service line through the advancement of nursing practice, program improvement initiatives, and staff education. This advanced practice nurse leads efforts to develop staff and programs to provide evidence-based outcome-guided practice. We designed our cancer program ôpyramidö on a strong foundation û the mission and vision of the organization; financial viability; innovative, cutting edge cancer technologies; and nursing and physician excellence. Our ôpyramidö includes basic and critical building blocks: evidence based practice, patient care services across the continuum, collaboration with community liaisons, and health and wellness programs. Some challenges to growing this service line include providing caring practices in a multicultural hospital, promoting our reputation and long standing community relationships, and identifying, defining, and promoting cancer services to our customers. During our program expansion, the CNS created an environment through mentoring and system change that empowered nurses to serve as patient advocates. Through the leadership of the CNS, in collaboration with members of the healthcare team, our organization is committed to providing and coordinating quality cancer care for our community.
