Hello Mindy, Do your informatics nurses build research and non-research protocols? Also, do you use Beacon for non-oncology infusions, and if so, do your oncology nurses support those departments? Thank you, Kristen

We have three nurses who function as Hem/Onc/BMT Nurse Infromaticists. Two are BSN prepared, former Infusion Nurses. The third is an APRN with clinical experience as a PNP within our leukemia/lymphoma team and formerly an infusion nurse. There primary roles include: – Building and validating BEACON treatment plans (EPIC Chemotherapy module) – Participating in protocol reviews prior to study launches – Evaluators for BEACON order templates developed from protocols – Acting as a liaison between clinical Hem/Onc/BMT teams and the hospital IS department – Resource for clinical providers and nurses in entering and implementing orders – Member of reviewing team for any event report or near miss that is associated with chemotherapy protocols – Member of reviewing body for department specific Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) Each of them underwent a lengthy orientation, including training at EPIC in inpatient EPIC, ambulatory EPIC, and BEACON.
Happy to chat if you would like more information.

I am reaching out to see if your program has a dedicated HemOnc Informatics Nurse. If such as role exists in your programs, would you mind sending me a list of their key tasks or ways they support your program?
