Abstract:
In order to provide comprehensive care to patients close to home, more community-based cancer programs are developing interdisciplinary disease management programs. Breast cancer is the largest cancer population treated in the community. Thus the need was identified to offer an educational symposium for Oncology Nurse Breast Care Navigators (ONBCNs) in order to provide them with accurate information, available resources, and access to a variety of successful best practice model programs. Additionally, the American College of Surgeons is discussing possible certification for breast centers and the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation is exploring credentialing for breast health nurses. The purpose of this symposium was to provide a clinical and administrative track with a special focus on Breast Care Program Development and Novel Patient Care Management Strategies. This program would help the ONBCN successfully coordinate the development of breast programs. Fox Chase Cancer Center (FCCC) and FCCC Partner (FCCCP) institutions planned the content for ôUnique Opportunities in Breast Care Managementö based on results of an educational needs assessment. Distinguished faculty included members of FCCC and FCCCP Breast Care Navigator group as well as national oncology speakers. The two- day program offered clinical practice updates; strategies for successful development of community-based breast care programs and best practice models for program implementation. A resource toolbox of best practices in program implementation was displayed and ONBCNs fielded questions related to their role, models of care and unique programs. An evening social event allowed for informal networking. Ninety-eight oncology nurses and cancer program administrators from 10 states attended the symposium. The vast number of positive responses from the program evaluations indicated that the attendees had their learning needs met. They appreciated the forum for discussion on comprehensive breast care with high caliber presenters, networking, and sharing of best practice. Some suggested it be offered annually. The outcomes of this symposium have broad implications for enhancing cancer care in the community. Blending the expertise of academic institutions with community partner institutions they serve provides patients and health care professionals with best practice guidelines and models for care. Similar cancer education symposiums can help oncology nurses develop comprehensive cancer programs.
