Abstract:
Clinical/Evidence Based Practice: Evidence-based practice is important for oncology nurses to assure that we are providing the most up-to-date effective, efficient, person and condition specific nursing care for patients. For our complex patients with bladder cancer who have had a cystectomy with ileal conduit, Studer pouch, or Indiana Pouch, this is particularly true. On our surgical urology oncology unit, we care for multiple patients who have had a cystectomy with continent or incontinent urinary diversions and have had several nurses new to the care of these patients. To assure that nurses throughout the unit had the same information, a group of nurses decided to develop evidence-based care recommendations and present this to all nurses on the unit. The goal was to determine the best evidence for nursing care of patients with cystectomy and urinary diversion that would be used by all nurses on our unit. These care recommendations would be utilized to appropriately assess patients, establish an up to- date plan of care for interventions to prevent complications, and provide optimal teaching for the patient and caregiver throughout the continuum of care and return to their community. Nurses from the unit (three clinical staff nurses and the clinical nurse specialist) reviewed the literature to determine the best evidence for practice, utilized this information to develop the evidence-based care recommendations, and presented this to nurses throughout the unit. The care recommendations are shared with nurses during orientation and are available to all for reference regarding care. The nursing staff found the update very helpful and stated that it helped clarify items they had previously confused between the diversions, as well as identify how and why to individualize the care for each of the diversions. Orientees find the evidence-based presentation helpful and also utilize the written care recommendations as they care for this complex surgical oncology patient. The evidence-based care recommendation presentation may be helpful to other oncology nurses caring for these complex surgical oncology patients who have undergone cystectomy with continent or incontinent urinary diversion.
