Community Oncology Nursing

community oncology nursing programme is to provide health services for patients receiving systemic cancer therapy, in response to a service need. Community nurses expanded their scope of practice and became partners with oncology day-ward nurses in caring for these patients. Community nurses developed the competence and confidence to safely deliver cancer care in the community. The commissioned service has shown year on year reductions in hospital-based care, increased provision of care closer to home, and improved patient satisfaction. This initiative shows that defined elements of acute cancer care can be safely delivered in the community so long as the training and support are provided.
