1) Does your heme/onc and/or stem cell transplant unit(s) have nurse-led rounds?BMT yes
2) Who all is involved in this rounding process?Attending, fellow, PAs, Pharmacy, Nurse taking care of patient, sometimes CNS or unit based educator and sometimes an outpatient PA or NP.
3) Does your unit employ a rounding template/tool?Yes
4) How did your unit foster buy-in from physicians and nurses alike?The attendings suggested this, had the nurses help develop the report tool. Has taken some time to get it hard wired but the nurses like it and feel empowered. We still struggle sometimes to get the nurse there but it is working. We actually presented this at ASBMT in February and we did a questionnaire about perception. Will probably do a follow up one.
