Abstract:
PURPOSE: The challenge of evidence-based practice relates to translating what we know into interventions that staff can and will implement and hopefully sustain. Our Research Education Working Group (REWG) offered its first review of published guidelines focusing on cancer-related fatigue with the aim of encouraging staff dialogue, particularly which strategies can best be incorporated into practice for our oncology population. The purpose of this abstract is to describe this educational offering as an example of engaging staff input and investigating the process of how staff can translate findings into practice.

METHOD:
A one-hour inservice by the Oncology Clinical Specialist during lunch time was scheduled. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network assessment parameters and the Oncology Nursing Society's Putting-Evidence-Into-Practice (PEP) cards on cancer-related fatigue were briefly reviewed followed by open discussion. The PEP card summarizes the evidence on 'What interventions are effective in preventing and treating fatigue during and following cancer and its treatment?' A scribe captured all comments and suggestions which were later reviewed and grouped into the following four categories: easy to implement, further investigation/additional resources required, in progress but requires further enforcement/education and comments.

FINDINGS:
The inservice was attended by 29 staff with overwhelmingly positive feedback. A small multi-disciplinary task force will review implementation strategies such as obtaining exercise equipment for appropriate patients and door signage for the resting patient. Future offerings on other established guidelines are planned by the REWG and will be held on a regular basis.

DISCUSSION:
Offerings such as the one described can assist staff in beginning the process of translating research findings into practice. Guidelines are valuable resources and may serve as the launch pad for initiating discussion off implementation strategies. Collegiality and open discussion can generate many practical ideas increasing the likelihood of success. Ongoing education and reevaluation are essential for maintaining standards for evidence-based patient care.
