Nurses, in general, are often seen as the backbone of the healthcare team, and, as a profession, are consistently ranked as the most trusted. Oncology nurses, in particular, are seen as benevolent, bright, and their voices are often heard by others working in the industry. Yet, challenges remain. To succeed in the current healthcare environment and into the future, you, as a nurse, must be aware of the current trends in oncology nursing and how those relate to the safety, care, and outcomes of patients with cancer. In her new book, Judith K. Payne details current trends in oncology nursing, while looking back at the history of the profession, and looking forward to the new challenges ahead. The first book to identify and conceptualize significant trends in the care of patients with cancer, Current Trends in Oncology Nursing pinpoints emerging areas in health care, such as informatics as well as opportunities for nursing professionals to be at the forefront of transforming cancer care. Chapters delve into a broad range of oncology nursing issues including such topics as advanced practice nursing in cancer care, modeling research for practice, theoretical frameworks and philosophies of care, oncology nursing leadership and healthcare policy, nursing in genetics, ethics, oncology community health, and primary care of the cancer survivor.
