PURPOSE: The Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale Short Form (MSAS-SF) is a widely used symptom assessment instrument. Patients who self-complete the MSAS-SF have difficulty following the two-part response format, resulting in incorrectly completed responses. We describe modifications to the response format to improve useability, and rational scoring rules for incorrectly completed items. METHODS: The modified MSAS-SF was completed by 311 women in our Peer and Nurse support Trial to Assist women in Gynaecological Oncology; the PeNTAGOn study...

PURPOSE: Endometrial cancer is the sixth most common female cancer worldwide. There is little evidence that routine hospital surveillance increases survival or decreases morbidity following treatment. Gynaecology Oncology clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) are ideally placed to provide the care, information and support to enable women with a gynaecological cancer to self-manage and live well. A multi-centre randomised controlled trial (RCT) compared hospital follow-up (HFU) with telephone follow-up (TFU) by CNSs...

BACKGROUND: Prognostication of survival in patients with advanced cancer has been challenging and contributes to poor illness understanding. Prognostic disagreement occurs even among providers and is a less studied phenomenon. OBJECTIVE: We introduced the surprise question (SQ), "Would I be surprised if this patient died in the next 1 year, 6 months, and 1 month?," at multidisciplinary rounds to increase palliative care referrals through the introduction of this prognostic prompt...

Navigation seeks to assess and address barriers that hinder a patient's access to care. With the success of the nurse navigation program at Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, leadership expanded navigation to neuro-oncology. The purpose of this article is to describe this population's unique needs and the effect of nurse navigation. Although the navigation role maintains integrity with regard to scope of practice, specialized navigation strategies are tailored to the neuro-oncology population and are different from other disease sites...

My mother was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer in 1998 at age 48. Her younger sister has been diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33 but ultimately died of ovarian cancer at age 47. Her mother died of ovarian cancer at age 47. I knew my fate. Meanwhile, as the medical world around me kept turning, the medical-surgical floor on which I worked became an oncology floor. This was not part of my plan.

Knowledge of genetic mutations and how these affect patient outcomes is rapidly expanding in the care of individuals diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM). Genetic analysis of bone marrow biopsies now provides information about diagnosis,response to treatment, and prognosis. Oncology nurses need to understand the science and meaning of bone marrow biopsy reports, including the implications of genetic alterations and minimal residual disease. This will allow them to provide care, support, and education related to MM and its treatment to patients and their families...

BACKGROUND: The Oncology Nursing Society published Oncology Nurse Navigator (ONN) Core Competencies in 2013. However, a 2016 role delineation study (RDS) indicated that the role had evolved since their release. The RDS also indicated that a growing number of nurse navigators have extensive oncology and navigation experience. OBJECTIVES: The update to the competencies was undertaken to identify current responsibilities of ONNs and differentiate novice from expert practice...

Healthcare providers often do not have the time to counsel patients on how to quit smoking. Consequently, little emphasis is placed on this pursuit, and no behavioral counseling is done. Using medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in combination with behavioral counseling has been shown to be effective in smoking cessation programs. Oncology nurses, and advanced practice nurses in particular, can play a significant role in helping patients to quit smoking. This article details how one oncology clinical nurse specialist created a smoking cessation program at her institution...

REVIEW
Deborah A Boyle, Nancy Jo Bush
THEORETICAL PRINCIPLES: Pediatric oncology nurses are particularly vulnerable to emotional distress. Responsible for the oversight of a child's care, these nurses sustain close interactions with multiple patients and families over time, many of whom are coping with life-limiting diagnoses. The world of pediatric oncology nurses is one where tragedy is routinely witnessed thus demanding self-care and healing across a continuum. PHENOMENON ADDRESSED: The aim of this article is to outline and review the emotional sequelae of pediatric oncology nurses' work and to suggest interventions to support well-being in light of prolonged caregiving...

BACKGROUND: Medical scribes are frequently incorporated into the patient care model to improve provider efficiency and enable providers to refocus their attention to the patient rather than the electronic health record (EHR). The medical scribe program was based on four pillars (objectives): (1) provider satisfaction, (2) standardized documentation, (3) documentation components for risk adjustment, and (4) revenue enhancement. METHODS: The medical scribe program was deployed in nine non-resident-supported clinics (internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopedics, hematology/oncology, urology), with the medical scribes (who have no clinical duties) supporting both physicians and advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants)...

The field of oncology has been permeated with the use of pharmacogenomics. There have been a few studies on oncology nurses' attitudes surrounding this topic. A study conducted in 2015 revealed six themes: consistency, effectiveness, cost, disparity, genetic counseling needs and need for further education. Further information obtained while conducting a pilot study for continuing education related to pharmacogenomics have revealed novel perspectives surrounding pharmacogenomics among oncology nurses. The previous six themes were substantiated...
