    Dr. Nelson, thank you for soliciting our input as students. Would there be a research interest related to the quality of life in children with sickle cell disease? Accrual for studies associated with the quality of life in this population is difficult, perhaps as a group, we could address some of these challenges.

    Hi, everyone. I am the Chair of the Evidence-based Practice and Research committee, and as part developing of a Strategic Plan for EBP and research, we would love to hear from you. A couple of years ago, we identified the following areas as nursing research priorities for APHON:

    1. quality of life in childhood cancer survivors
    2. palliative care
    3. self-care for the hematology/oncology nurse

    Please let us know if you have other ideas or suggestions for what you think our priorities should be, or if you agree with these established priorities.

    thanks in advance for your input.
