Use of symptom guides in nurse care coordination
WSU Vancouver External Mentoring Program
Evidence-based guidelines are not routinely used among nurses to assist cancer patients with management side effects of chemotherapy. This mentorship will provide guidance in developing a project with a local cancer center to examine the utility of such guides for nurses providing telephonic patient support. In addition, the mentorship with Dr. Dawn Stacey will facilitate networking with Dr. Stacey’s international Cancer Center research collaborators to gain insight into the issues and unique challenges of conducting clinical research within cancer treatment settings.
