Nursing clinical research is a growing field, and as more nurses become engaged in conducting clinical research, feasibility studies may be their first encounter. Understanding what they are, how to conduct them, and the importance of properly reporting their outcomes is vital to the continued advancement of nursing science.
Pediatric oncology phase 1 clinical trials (P1Ts) are essential to developing new anticancer therapies; however, they raise complex ethical concerns about balancing the need for this research with the well-being of participating children. The purpose of this integrative review was to synthesize and appraise the evidence of how P1T participation, which begins with consent and ends with the transition off the P1T, can affect the well-being (either positively or negatively) of children with cancer. The Resilie...
To assess the efficacy of an interactive continuing education module in improving knowledge of pharmacogenomics in oncology nursing practice.
To explore awareness of foodborne infection risk during chemotherapy treatment, to assess knowledge of risk-reducing food safety practices in patients with cancer and their family caregivers, and to determine self-reported food-handling practices.
To assess an intervention derived from self-regulation theory (SRT) to promote well-being for individuals with advanced lung cancer.
I try to touch base with the clinic nurses each day before patients and physicians (in that order) start arriving and the usual busyness of the day takes over. A recent early morning conversation centered on one nurse's frustration with the spouse of a man who had been treated in another city and who was now under the care of a physician at our clinic. The woman had been calling the nurse repeatedly since her husband had returned home after the procedure. He was having complications, and she wanted somethin...
To offer a better understanding of the experiences, preferences, and needs of patients with thyroid cancer.
I would like to thank Anne Katz, PhD, RN, FAAN, for her thoughtful editorial in the July 2018 issue of Oncology Nursing Forum. At least twice, that I am aware of, someone has used my slides without my permission. The first time happened about 10 years ago. I gave an educational program on the fundamentals of hereditary cancer syndromes at a regional conference for oncology nurses. I provided a detailed outline for note-taking and a list of references and resources. On one slide, there was a picture of my en...

The Power Over Pain-Coaching (POP-C) intervention was developed to improve functional status and decrease pain and pain-related distress among ambulatory African American patients with cancer. By bypassing the effects of disparities, the POP-C intervention may help to decrease suffering among African American patients with cancer pain; consequently, it contributes to improving quality of life and addressing social and other determinants of health among members of this population. .
As I was thinking about a topic for this editorial, news and social media outlets exploded with the announcement that employees at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had been instructed to not use any of seven words or phrases in budget documents (diversity, transgender, fetus, unborn child, vulnerable, evidence- based, and science-based). To say that this hit a nerve is an understatement. My Twitter feed and email inbox filled with messages of outrage and concern, and I must admit I was...
