This session will feature evidence-based systematic reviews conducted by two Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) teams from the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) Nursing Discipline.
The evidence-based recommendation process includes a rigorous examination of the literature to assist healthcare providers in the care of children, adolescents, and young adults before, during, and after cancer treatment. Evidence to guide nursing practice in regard to PEG-asparaginase administration, including monitoring for hypersensitivity reactions, management of reactions, and recommendations for patient/family education will be presented. Additionally, evidence related to fertility preservation options for pediatric, adolescent, and young adult patients undergoing cancer treatment, and related recommendations for nursing practice, will be discussed. Findings from these projects will demonstrate the importance of incorporating evidence and evaluating patient outcomes in nursing practice, and will provide learners with new knowledge and skills to enhance the care that they provide for pediatric oncology patients and their families.
