Project Details


Introduction: Cancer patients go through very complicated and delicate moments throughout their disease process. Pain emerges during this period when it is a reality, however the health professional neglects this dimension.
Objective: To assess compliance with evidence-based practice on pain monitoring and assessment in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy in an Oncology Day Unit.
Methodology: This evidence implementation project used the Joanna Briggs Institute– Practical Application of Clinical Evidence System (JBI PACES) and Getting Research into Practice methodology.
Expected results and implications: Identify barriers and facilitators for implementing evidence-based practices in monitoring and evaluating pain in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy in an Oncology Day Unit. To improve compliance rates related to evidence-based practice for monitoring and assessing pain in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy in Oncology Day Unit. Improve knowledge regarding pain therapeutic intervention best practices in a multidisciplinary healthcare team undergoing chemotherapy in an Oncology Day Unit.
