PEDSS: Nurse-Led Parent Educational Discharge Support Strategies for Children Newly Diagnosed with Cancer
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) invites Magnet®-recognized organizations with pediatric populations to submit expressions of interest to participate in a three-year multisite research study beginning in 2017. This study will test interventions providing discharge education for parents of newly diagnosed children with cancer to help them prepare for managing care at home. The study was selected based on a competitive request for proposals.
Test the effectiveness of two different support interventions that enhance usual discharge education
Organizations may want to participate if they:
- Routinely admit children newly diagnosed with cancer for inpatient care (a designated oncology unit is not required)
- Are willing to commit to a three-year research project and integrate an early intervention into standard patient care
Organizational commitment requires:
- Designating a site principal investigator (PI) for an average of 0.2 FTE (4-6 hours per week) for three years
- Involving clinical nurses on the site study team
- Providing access to a computer or electronic notebook for data collection
- Paying travel costs for the site PI to attend two training meetings over the course of the study
Benefits of Participating:
- Identify strategies to improve discharge teaching and postdischarge home management
- Improve postdischarge outcomes for children with a new cancer diagnosis and their parents
- Meet Magnet Recognition Program® requirements for research
- Participate in a research project of national scope and significance
- Receive at study's completion:
- Your own hospital-specific results
- License for continuing use of study instruments
