Abstract:
Research is a major component of a National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center. Oncology nurses make significant contributions to clinical research study initiation, implementation and data collection. Although oncology nurses are frequently immersed in providing care for patients enrolled on research studies, the information about study outcomes and future applications often does not reach the individuals that implement the research studies and document the study data points. Providing this information will encourage the nurses to become advocates for research studies as well as experts in providing care to patients enrolled in research studies. A multidisciplinary group was formed to provide monthly presentations that will include an overview of research studies that were implemented on site including the study results. A single page of study highlights was given to the nurses to take back to their respective areas to share with their peers. An increase in the knowledge base of nurses that have attended the programs has been realized. There is also an element of pride that the nurses now have knowing that they played an integral part in achieving the study outcomes. Implementing a plan for sharing research study information with the stakeholders allowed the nurses to become more knowledgeable about the outcomes of the studies they have implemented and to understand the important role that clinical research plays in creating evidence based cancer treatment and care for the future. A formal evaluation of nursing satisfaction with this process has not been undertaken but will be available at the time of the presentation.
