Pam Dockx is currently the Clinical Coordinator on 6NE, the inpatient hematology/oncology/clinical research unit at Boston Children's Hospital. She has been a pediatric oncology nurse for 36 years with a focus on the unique needs of the complex pediatric oncology patient population. Pam has been an active member of APHON for the past 20 years and has presented at the local and national level both poster, paper and podium presentations on a variety of oncology topics including patient acuity, best practice for diagnosing thrombotic CVAD occlusions, and the use of low dose Ketamine in the non-ICU setting for pediatric hematology and oncology pain.
She was also an APHON Chemotherapy/Biotherapy course instructor for 15 years, receiving the instructor of the year award in 2018. Pam received grant funding and implemented a hospital to home program for patients making the difficult transition to home at end of life. As a member of the 2019 Boston Children's Hospital (BCH) Nursing Science Fellowship, her work explored the acuity and complexity of pediatric oncology patients and led to the first phase of her project assessing pediatric oncology nursing quality measurement across the United States. She is looking forward to the second phase of her project, the launch of the Consortium for the Measurement of Pediatric Oncology Nursing Excellence (CMP-ONE) this summer.
