Abstract [en]

Nursing today faces numerous challenges. Societal changes lead to reorganization of health care, changing workloads with sicker patients in hospital and home care, and limited economic resources. The increasing and changing nature of knowledge needed for expert care provision challenges nurses to continually update their competencies. These are issues demanding proactive and dynamic changes in the way nurses conceive their mandates and practice. The aim of the action-research project presented here was to foster improved quality of care for patients with advanced cancer through collaborative endeavours integrating cancer nursing clinical practice, research and education in a knowledge exchange programme. The programme was based on input about caregiving needs from multi-professional staff caring for patients with advanced cancer in a variety of healthcare settings. Undergraduate baccalaureate nursing students were then engaged in literature studies to help address these needs. Results of the studies were communicated back to the involved clinicians in a variety of ways. In this paper, we discuss what we have experienced as opportunities and obstacles in conducting the project, based on our reflections and external evaluations. This is linked to a broader discussion of ways of integrating cancer nursing research, education and practice.
