Abstract:
The oncology nursing profession is challenged to stay current with ongoing scientific advances. A system to address the various needs of nurses across the oncology service line, utilizing the diverse clinical and leadership expertise in an NCI designated academic clinical cancer center was identified. An Oncology Professional Nursing Development Council was organized with membership from inpatient, infusion therapy, radiation oncology, home care, hospice, pain management, community, and education. Consistent with the ONS action plan for 2006, the aims of this council are: 1) identify the needs of nursing across the oncology service line, 2) implement evidence based educational programs, 3) increase utilization of expertise in a large academic university medical center, 4) develop and implement criteria for attending educational offerings. 1) An education needs assessment survey was distributed to all oncology service line nurses. The survey was composed of 50 items. Each item was rated by priority of need with 1 (least important) to 10 (most important). 2) Council members networked to identify program presenters. 3) Responses from the educational needs assessment survey and a literature review provided the data to organize ongoing CE approved programs for end of 2006 - 2007. 4) A binder that includes the newly developed oncology service line education calendar, ONS educational blueprint, and sites for online CE credits is updated quarterly and available across service lines. The survey was completed by 30 oncology nurses. Highest priority needs among all sites include: evidence based practice projects, research, pain, oral chemotherapies, stress management, and gynecological cancers. The educational programs have been well attended and include adult and pediatric nurses from inpatient and ambulatory sites. The results revealed improved collaboration between oncology sites, as indicated by joint projects now being developed. To further the above stated aims and to address the education needs survey, a mentor subcommittee, consistent with ONS was recently developed. The council has improved the system to promote a seamless, integrated process of evaluating nurse's needs and implementing accessible education programs to elevate the oncology nursing profession as a whole.
