Abstract:
The Oncology Nursing Society identified important issues facing advanced practices nurses (APNs) in April of 2001. One issue that was addressed was the role ambiguity of the APN. Moreover, a recent poll suggested that only 25% of consumers when asked knew what an advanced practice nurse was. This role ambiguity is a cause of concern for advanced practice nurses. The purpose of this study is to utilize a pre and post- test instrument to evaluate consumer knowledge regarding the role of the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) in an oncology practice before and after the distribution of an informational brochure. The specific research questions that will be investigated are 1) What is the baseline level of knowledge of CINJ patients regarding advance practice nurses? 2) Does the number of visits with an APN at CINJ increase the patient's knowledge of the role of the oncology APN at CINJ? 3) Does an educational instruction, increase patientÆs knowledge about the role of oncology APN's independent of the number of visits with an oncology APN at CINJ. The conceptual framework that has been chosen for this study is from the work of Malcolm S. Knowles' adult learning theory andragogy. This is a quasi-experimental, descriptive study using a pre-test, post-test design strategy to investigate the level of consumer knowledge before and after and educational intervention. Two groups of patients will be invited to participant in the study. For each group, those returning the consent form will be randomly assigned to either the intervention or control group until the required sample size is reached. The intervention group will receive CINJÆs APN brochure and the control group will not. The patients will be asked to answer a set of questions at two time points: pre and post study. These 10 sub- questions will be summarized by the total number of questions answered correctly for increased statistical power, easier interpretation and to avoid the multiple testing issue. The descriptive statistics for each of the 10 sub-questions will be provided, however. The second part is patientsÆ knowledge of the required education for APN. This study is currently in data analysis phase and will hopefully be completed by Congress.
