Author Details:

Abstract:
In 1991, the first Advanced Oncology Nursing Certification exam was offered by the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation. This credentialing process acknowledged the contributions of nurses specializing in oncology nursing who established an academic foundation in the advanced practice of oncology nursing. Ten years later, in July of 2001, the state of Illinois initiated licensing advanced practice nurses. Many questions regarding the rules and regulations followed. This presentation includes experiences of establishing an advanced practice in palliative care in an oncology setting. Topics include establishing a collaborative practice, prescriptive privileges, charging for services, and integrating this role into the care setting. The palliative care advanced practice nurse is a key role in the coordination of JCAHO compliance with pain management requirements. Examples of documentation will be provided as well as promotion of an interdisciplinary care plan for symptom management. Unique to this position is the prominent focus of naturopathy, nutrition, physical therapy, mind-body medicine, pastoral care and patient education.
