This topic seems to be coming up quite a bit lately as teams continue to evolve. Our team at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City has a soon to be team of 21 APP’s. We manage both inpatient and outpatient services including Hematology, Oncology and BMT. We focus our clinical practice in one area where we have great collaboration with our physician partners and nurse coordinators. I would be happy to chat about our current structure and learn from others’ experiences as well.
Feel free to e-mail me directly and we could set up a time to chat.

Good afternoon, I am part of a team that is currently looking at provider staffing models for our inpatient service(s). The conversation is largely related to oncology but hematology has a place in the discussion as well. So… I am curious, what is the inpatient provider staffing model for your hem and onc or hem/onc services? Are APRNs involved and if so, how? Are Residents involved and if so, how? Do you have split APRN and Resident services? What is the patient mix within your model? Ex: Inpatient chemo patients are managed by APRN and other oncology related admissions are managed by Residents. Does anyone have a model that incorporates APRNs and Residents into the management of the same patient mix with different patient assignments? Also, where does hematology fit in? I know I have asked a lot of questions but more to drive thoughts and give an idea of what I am asking, so please do not feel that you need to answer every question, I am would just love to hear about various models. thanks, Jenni
