Abstract:
The purpose of this abstract is to present a comprehensive educational and symptom management needs assessment project implemented through a collaborative oncology interdisciplinary effort. The project aim was to develop a system that would ensure that there is continuity of care (symptom management and supportive services) in all areas that an oncology patient receives care. This project is in response to the recognition that 1) progressive restructuring of healthcare delivery results in less time for patients to spend with the healthcare team; 2) patients need to take accountability to learn and perform self-care strategies; and 3) there is a need to provide education and supportive resources to patients across the cancer care continuum. Using components from the Symptom Management Model (Dodd, 2001), the team identified the following priority needs: 1) To examine the patient's perception of symptom experience so that education and supportive services are appropriately provided. 2) To identify the existing education and supportive services available to individuals undergoing chemotherapy. 3) Identify resources that are not currently being used but are accessible. 4) Identify resources that are in existence but require outreach in terms of grant-writing, philanthropic fund raising, etc. Based on findings, the following was implemented: 1) Design of a descriptive study to determine patient's perception of symptom experience; 2) a resource of professional volunteers who are training to facilitate support groups; 3) a current list of resources available institution and community wide, and 4) a grant-writing task force to address additional needs.
