Abstract:
Clarian Health Partners, Inc. (CHP) in collaboration with Indiana University Cancer Center (IUCC) and Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSOM) is creating a first of its kind for Indiana freestanding cancer hospital on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis. The goal of the cancer program is to become a top-ten NCI Comprehensive designated cancer center in the United States. The researchers of nurse-physician collaboration posit that there is a direct correlation between collaboration and positive patient outcomes. The purpose is to evaluate differences in collaboration in hematology and oncology services. The authorÆs primary hypothesis is that there is a statistically significant difference between nurse-physician collaboration for the hematology patient population and the oncology patient population. Utilizing the Collaboration and Satisfaction about Care Decisions (CSACD) tool by Judith Baggs, a convenience sample of 30 medicine residents oncoming to the hematology and oncology service will be collected and at 3 weeks into the rotation. At the 3 week interval, the attending physicians and physicians in their fellowship will also be asked to complete the survey. At each 3 week interval within the 5 months, a convenience sample of 10 staff oncology/hematology RNs will be collected following obtaining informed consent from the participants utilizing the CSACD tool. The primary outcome measure for all analyses will be the total score from the Collaboration and Satisfaction about Care Decisions (CSACD) questionnaire. The study is powered based on the comparison of combined RN and physician CSACD scores between hematology and oncology groups. Although a clinically relevant difference in total CSACD score has not previously been defined, it was decided that a 5-point difference between groups would constitute a significant difference. Assuming a standard deviation in questionnaire scores of 7 for each group, a total of 86 participants would provide 90% power to detect a difference of 5 points in mean questionnaire scores between groups using a Student t-test with a significance level of a = 0.05. Results of this study will provide evidence to oncology nurses for administration to propose developmental opportunities and team interventions to improve nurse-physician collaboration within the inpatient cancer programs.
