Oncology Nursing Grand Rounds

Oncology Nursing Grand Rounds provides a forum to strengthen nursing research and integrate nursing research into oncology nursing practice using an evidence-based practice framework. The goal of evidence- based practice is to use evidence to guide interventions that will enhance the quality, outcomes, and cost effectiveness of care. This can be expanded beyond just practice to education and publications as well. Examples of topics that might be presented include: review of literature, treatment and care guidelines for selected clinical topics (e.g., pain, psychosocial distress), asking and answering research questions in clinical practice, oncology nursing-sensitive outcomes. All nurses at the NIH are welcome to attend.
