Abstract:
In the changing oncology environment it is even more important to establish a collaborative practice between all the members of the oncology practice. More nurse practitioners are being employed by oncologist to provide quality, cost-effective care with high levels of patient satisfaction. The process and requirements of successful integration of the nurse practitioner role into an oncology practice will be discussed. The success of the integration of the nurse practitioner role requires a clear, articulated job description, mentoring, support and willingness to delegate. The factors that inhibit successful integration also must be recognized and addressed to facilitate the success of the nurse practitioner in oncology practice. The true success of the integration into practice is the willingness of the physician to utilize the nurse practitioner, understand the nurse practitioner scope of practice and to understand the value of the role of the nurse practitioner. The practice will experience increased revenue, efficiency, patient satisfaction and collegial input. The self-evaluation of the performance appraisal will demonstrate the NPÆs satisfaction with the role integration. The nurse practitioner in oncology is becoming an efficient addition to the practice in providing cost-effective care to the patient while providing the practice with expertise and revenue. The success of the integration of the role into practice will benefit all of the practice and especially the patients.
