Abstract:
Administration/Leadership Development: The use of artwork, performance art and art expression has long been a part of the RPCI patient care environment. The need to enhance the patient experience and mitigate the effects of prolonged hospital stays, appointment wait times, families waiting for patients undergoing surgery, chemotherapy infusions was noted as an area rich for artists interventions to occur. The implementation of Artists-in-Residence was identified as a significant addition to the overall Arts program. This program was identified as a means to help patients communicate their experiences and feelings about cancer treatments in a non-traditional manner where artists act as facilitators to that process. Nurses were instrumental in identifying the patient populations where the artists would share their program. In collaboration with the University of Buffalo, Center for the Arts and Womens & Childrens Hospital of Buffalo, RPCI nurses, physicians and the volunteer office participated in multiple meetings to develop program plans, raise funds for the program, interview prospective artists and set up artist orientation programs. Staff nurses were active participants in encouraging patients to access the benefits of the program. The nurses became advocates for the program by identifying patients and families who would most benefit from an artists' expertise. Twelve artists completed a two week orientation in August 2008 and the Artists-in-Residence Program was finally implemented in September 2008; six were assigned to RPCI. The program has been very well received by the Institute patients, staff and community. There has been a strong connection between patients, artists and nurses who act as catalysts to the referral process. The nurses actively promote access and special requests from patients and their families. Both quantitative and qualitative research projects are in development through RPCI, the O'Shei Foundation and the University of Buffalo School of Nursing. The Artist-in-Residence program is a success. The collaboration of nurses, patients, artists and volunteers has propelled the program forward. The use of music, painting, storytelling, empathetic listening and "paint while you wait" aspects of the program have enhanced the patient and family membersÆ experience at RPCI.
