  • EDITORIAL Heroes of our time

    • Authors: Margaret I. Fitch
      First page: 158
      Abstract: As I sit to write this editorial, it is May 26, 2020, and we are still in the midst of our struggles with the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. As of 5 pm today, Ontario posted its lowest new case count (320), which is an encouraging trend; but we are not ‘out of the woods’ yet. Our Ontario totals are now 27,809 confirmed or pending cases, which includes 2,218 deaths.

  • Ambulatory care unit role optimization for the specialized oncology nurse

    • Authors: Andrea Knox
      Pages: 159 - 168
      Abstract: While the role of the specialized oncology nurse in treatment and symptom management is well established, the role in the outpatient setting is not as well defined. Increasing patient complexity, the rising incidence of cancer, and evolving treatment regimens is pressing BC Cancer to reassess its Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU) model of care to better meet patient needs. The purpose of this project was to identify and map the specific role and functional tasks of nurses working in the ACU to specialty competencies for the oncology nurse. A baseline functional role elements list and role-competency map were developed from clinical observations and focus group sessions. This work will help provide role clarity and enable nursing to articulate both the scope of practice and the specialty competencies required to best meet the needs of our patients in the ACU setting. The results of this project can be utilized in strategic and operational planning discussions focused on improving health services for patients and supporting the continued professional development of front-line staff. The approaches utilized may be of interest to others who wish to apply similar methods in their own cancer settings.

  • Optimisation du rôle de l’infirmière spécialisée en oncologie dans
           l’unité de soins ambulatoires

    • Authors: Andrea Knox
      Pages: 169 - 179
      Abstract: Si le rôle de l’infirmière spécialisée en oncologie dans le traitement et la prise en charge des symptômes est bien défini, il n’en va pas de même pour le milieu ambulatoire. Les cas se complexifient, l’incidence du cancer augmente et les régimes de traitement ne cessent d’évoluer; cette situation force l’organisme BC Cancer à réévaluer le modèle de ses unités de soins ambulatoires afin de mieux répondre aux besoins des patients. Le présent projet a pour but de déterminer et de schématiser le rôle exact et les tâches fonctionnelles des infirmières travaillant en unité de soins ambulatoires, puis de les comparer aux compétences spécialisées de l’infirmière en oncologie. Une liste de référence des rôles fonctionnels des infirmières ainsi qu’une grille des rôles et compétences ont été élaborées à partir d’observations cliniques et de séances de discussion en groupe. Le présent travail aidera à élucider le rôle des infirmières en milieu ambulatoire et permettra à ces dernières d’exprimer clairement la portée de leur pratique et des compétences spécialisées requises pour répondre au mieux aux besoins des patients dans ce milieu. Les résultats du projet pourront servir à orienter les discussions de planification stratégique et opérationnelle qui visent à améliorer les services de santé prodigués aux patients et à offrir du perfectionnement professionnel au personnel de première ligne. Les approches utilisées dans le cadre du projet sont également intéressantes pour ceux qui voudraient appliquer des méthodes semblables à leur propre milieu de soins du cancer.

  • Engaging patients as partners in cancer care: An innovative strategy to
           implement screening for distress'

    • Authors: Jacynthe Rivest, Véronique Desbaumes Jodoin, Irène Leboeuf, Nathalie Folch, Joé T. Martineau, Geneviève Beaudet-Hillman, Claudine Tremblay
      Pages: 180 - 185
      Abstract: Patient distress is frequently missed in everyday cancer care, yet can be associated with decreased quality of life and satisfaction with care, as well as increased risk for comorbidity and morbidity. Considered as an aspect of a patient-centred approach, screening for distress is now an international standard of practice and constitutes an accreditation criterion for cancer centers in the USA and Canada. Inspired by existing health partnership models, the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal’s (CHUM) Integrative Cancer Care Center recruited patients to act as partners during the creation and implementation of its screening for distress program. Patient partner roles in the program included becoming a member of a specialized psychosocial oncology team, contributing to a healthcare professional training program and helping to select tools to detect distress. This paper describes why and how the CHUM cancer care centre developed an innovative screening for distress program, using a patient partnership approach, to better meet the needs of patients with cancer.

  • Les patients-partenaires dans les soins du cancer : Une stratégie
           novatrice dans le dépistage de la détresse'

    • Authors: Jacynthe Rivest, Véronique Desbaumes Jodoin, Irène Leboeuf, Nathalie Folch, Joé Martineau, Geneviève Beaudet-Hillman, Claudine Tremblay
      Pages: 186 - 192
      Abstract: La détresse des patients atteints de cancer est un aspect souvent négligé dans la prestation quotidienne des soins. Cela peut affecter la qualité de vie des malades et leur satisfaction à l’égard des soins qu’ils reçoivent, en plus d’accroître le risque de comorbidité et de morbidité. Le dépistage de la détresse, l’un des aspects considérés dans l’approche centrée sur le patient, figure désormais parmi les normes de pratiques internationales et les critères d’agrément pour les centres de traitement du cancer aux États-Unis et au Canada. En se basant sur des modèles de partenariats existants, le Centre intégré de cancérologie du Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) a recruté des patients qui ont agi en « partenaires » dans la création et la mise en œuvre de son programme de détection de la détresse. Dans le cadre de ce programme, des patients-partenaires ont intégré une équipe de soutien psychosocial spécialisée en oncologie. Ils ont ainsi contribué au programme de formation des professionnels de la santé et aidé à sélectionner des outils de dépistage de la détresse. Cet article décrit pourquoi et comment le centre de cancérologie du CHUM a développé un programme novateur de détection de la détresse misant sur le patient-partenaire en vue de mieux répondre aux besoins des personnes qui luttent contre le cancer.

  • Quality of telephone nursing services for adults with cancer and related
           non-emergent visits to the emergency department

    • Authors: Dawn Stacey, Lynne Jolicoeur, Katelyn Balchin, Kate Duke, Claire Ludwig, Meg Carley, Lindsay Jibb, Craig Kuziemsky, Suzanne Madore, Lisa Rambout, Jackie Romanick, Michael M. Vickers, Lorraine Martelli
      Pages: 193 - 199
      Abstract: A quality improvement project was conducted to determine the quality of telephone nursing for patients with cancer symptoms. Eligible patients were ones who telephoned the nurse about cancer symptom(s) within four weeks prior to an emergency department (ED) visit not requiring hospital admission. Experienced oncology nurses extracting data indicated appropriateness of ED visits and opportunities for improvement. The Symptom Management Analysis Tool was used to analyze nurse documentation. For 77 patients, 87% ED visits occurred within four days of calls about symptoms (e.g., pain, breathlessness, constipation, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting) and 91% could have been managed by more complete telephone assessment and/or an urgent clinic visit. Quality of nurse documentation revealed few patients were assessed adequately (38%), received any symptom-specific medication review (49%), or were guided in self-care strategies (17%). There was low-quality telephone symptom management by nurses and a need for alternative options for patients requiring urgent face-to-face assessments. Our findings highlight a gap in use of guidelines for informing telephone symptom management.

  • Lien entre la qualité des interventions téléphoniques des infirmières
           auprès des adultes atteints de cancer et les visites évitables au
           service des urgences

    • Authors: Dawn Stacey, Lynne Jolicoeur, Katelyn Balchin, Kate Duke, Claire Ludwig, Meg Carley, Lindsay Jibb, Craig Kuziemsky, Suzanne Madore, Lisa Rambout, Jackie Romanick, Michael M. Vickers, Lorraine Martelli
      Pages: 200 - 207
      Abstract: Un projet d’amélioration de la qualité a été mené afin de mesurer la qualité des interventions téléphoniques des infirmières auprès des patients présentant des symptômes associés au cancer. Les patients admissibles au projet avaient téléphoné à une infirmière pour signaler des symptômes dans les 4 semaines précédant une visite aux urgences qui n’avait pas requis d’hospitalisation. Les infirmières spécialisées en oncologie qui ont extrait les données évaluaient la pertinence des visites aux urgences et les points à améliorer. Nous avons eu recours à un outil d’analyse de la gestion des symptômes pour analyser la documentation du personnel infirmier. Sur 77 patients, 87 % des visites aux urgences ont eu lieu durant les 4 jours suivant un appel téléphonique justifié par la présence de symptômes (douleur, dyspnée, constipation, diarrhée, nausées ou vomissements, etc.). Dans 91 % des cas, une évaluation téléphonique plus exhaustive ou une consultation dans une clinique de soins d’urgence aurait suffi. Selon la documentation laissée par les infirmières, peu de patients ont été évalués adéquatement (38 %), ont bénéficié d’une révision de la médication traitant leurs symptômes (49 %) ou ont reçu des conseils sur les stratégies de soins autoadministrés (17 %). La qualité de la prise en charge des symptômes effectuée au téléphone par les infirmières laissait à désirer et il aurait fallu trouver des solutions de rechange pour les patients nécessitant une évaluation d’urgence en personne. Ces constats font ressortir des lacunes dans l’utilisation des directives sur la gestion téléphonique des symptômes.

  • Facing forward: The development of a cancer nursing knowledge and practice
           framework

    • Authors: Allyson Nowell, Colleen Campbell
      Pages: 208 - 211
      Abstract: The Canadian Association of Nurses in Oncology (CANO/ACIO) is the national organization supporting nurses to develop and promote excellence in oncology nursing practice, education, research and leadership. To support their mission, CANO/ACIO has developed Standards of Care for cancer patients and Standards and Competencies for Oncology Nurses caring for these individuals (CANO, 2001, 2006). Since the creation of the first standards for specialized oncology nursing in 2006, cancer care has changed considerably with increased cancer occurrence and prevalence, new therapies including oral agents, and cancer care transitioning from specialized treatment centres (Canadian Cancer Society, 2019). Given the changing landscape for nursing practice, CANO/ACIO embarked on a process to update the current standards with the aim of including the role of nurses caring for cancer patients and families in all settings.  Through this process experts identified the need for a national nursing framework to assist with the integration of current standards and describe nursing contributions to high quality cancer care. This article describes the process that CANO/ACIO utilized to establish the CANO Nursing Knowledge and Practice Framework and Toolkit for Cancer Care.

  • Tournés vers l’avenir : Élaboration du Cadre des connaissances et de
           la pratique en soins infirmiers contre le cancer

    • Authors: Allyson Nowell, Colleen Campbell
      Pages: 212 - 216
      Abstract: L’Association canadienne des infirmières en oncologie (ACIO/CANO) est l’organisation nationale qui soutient les infirmières afin de favoriser l’excellence dans la pratique infirmière, l’enseignement, la recherche et le leadership en oncologie. Pour soutenir sa mission, l’ACIO/CANO a élaboré des normes de soins pour les patients atteints de cancer ainsi que des normes et des compétences pour les infirmières en oncologie prenant soin de ces personnes (CANO/ACIO, 2001, 2006). Depuis la création des premières normes de soins infirmiers spécialisés en oncologie en 2006, les soins contre le cancer ont changé considérablement, notamment avec la multiplication des occurrences et de la prévalence du cancer, l’émergence de nouveaux traitements contre le cancer comme les agents par voie orale, de même que la transition des soins contre le cancer hors des centres spécialisés de traitement (CCS/SCC, 2019). Compte tenu du paysage en mutation de la pratique infirmière, l’ACIO/CANO a entrepris de mettre à jour ses normes dans le but d’y intégrer les infirmières de tous les milieux prenant soin de patients et de familles touchés par le cancer. Dans l’exercice, les spécialistes ont relevé le besoin d’établir un cadre national de soins infirmiers pour mieux intégrer ces mises à jour et brosser un tableau de la contribution infirmière aux soins oncologiques de grande qualité. Le présent article décrit le processus suivi par l’ACIO/CANO pour élaborer le Cadre des connaissances et de la pratique en soins infirmiers contre le cancer.

      First page: 217
      Abstract: “Unless we are making progress in our nursing every year, every month, every week, take my word for it we are going back.”
      — Florence NightingaleIn oncology nursing, there is no question that progress has been and continues to be made. A glance back at the milestones over the years shows just how far we have come in the diagnosis of and treatment for cancer (see timeline below). Oncology nurses have unequivocally been part of the successes in cancer care and, indeed, play an integral role in current and future progress.

While adhering to mandatory physical distancing policies to prevent the spread of the virus, healthcare providers have been challenged to adapt to continuous changes in procedures while caring for patients. A notable unanticipated consequence of COVID-19 is the impact on palliative care practitioners treating COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients, especially in caring for patients at end of life. The pandemic has impacted the end-of-life care experience of hospitalized patients and practitioners in profound ways. These experiences demonstrate a greater level of loneliness, difficulties in decision-making and communication, and an intense emotional impact on patients, their families, and clinicians.

  • RESEARCH REFLECTION Research in pediatric oncology: Engaging parents to
           strengthen research processes, outcomes and knowledge translation

    • Authors: Jill M. G. Bally, Solomon K. Mcharo
      Pages: 220 - 222
      Abstract: Childhood cancer is the most common disease-related cause of death in Canadian children aged 0-14 years, with more than 1,000 new diagnoses every year (Canadian Cancer Statistics Advisory Committee, 2019). Treatment for childhood cancers requires complex, intensive, and lengthy regimens, often lasting years. Each new diagnosis marks tremendous upheaval in the lives of the child and their family, and an opportunity for nurses in pediatric oncology to make a difference. However, to best intervene, it is crucial to understand the experiences and needs of parental caregivers who have children in treatment for cancer. Patient Oriented Research is one way to bring together patients, family members, researchers, healthcare providers, and decision-makers to actively collaborate, understand best practices, and create transformational positive change in pediatric oncology.

  • BRIEF COMMUNICATION Living with body image changes following completion of
           cancer treatment

    • Authors: Margaret I. Fitch
      Pages: 231 - 234
      Abstract: I experienced some body image issues. I am very fortunate to still have my right breast, but two surgeries changed it so that it looked and felt different. Family and close friends didn’t understand and thought that I should be thankful for the positive outcome. I was extremely thankful and knew it could have been much worse, but the fact was, my body was different and I was having some trouble accepting it. As well, I was single and dating, so I struggled with the fact that a potential partner may not find my body attractive or desirable.  (#127 Q33 NL)
