Abstract:
There is a national effort in both the private and public sectors to define quality cancer care. In addition, medical care continues to be impacted by advances in technology. Nurses need to stay abreast in these areas as the implications derived from defining quality care and any technology implemented will inevitably impact the nursing role. The purpose of this abstract is three-fold. First, key elements of quality patient care in oncology will be defined. Second, the needs and challenges that community oncology practices face in attempting to delivery efficient quality care will be discussed and specific examples from our clinical experience will be shared. Lastly, an example of technology solution used in clinical practice to deliver optimal, efficient, well-documented care and education will be provided. We will describe the key elements that encompass quality care and outcomes for oncology patients, with a particular focus on needs and challenges in oncology practice to achieve these outcomes. Special attention will be paid to assessment and education of patients, the need for documentation, pertinent clinical data, practice efficiency and how technology solutions may contribute to achieving these goals. Patient-reported symptom assessment and the exchange of information from patient to nurse and provider will be highlighted. A revolutionary technology system currently being utilized in clinical practice to address these components will be described and discussed in detail. Enhanced nursing strategies for use of technology to achieve optimal patient outcomes and education with supporting documentation will be discussed. Nurses are better able to identify and attend to symptom management with the use of a technology based patient self-assessment tool. In addition, technology may make educational interventions and appropriate management decisions more efficient and effective. Nurses need to be aware that the implications for defining quality care will affect them. Nurses need to actively participate in defining the quality care concept and their role in it. As clinicians, nurses will likely be end-users of clinical technologies and can use them to improve practice efficiency and strive toward better patient outcomes.
