Purpose/Objectives: To evaluate the relevance of a five-dimensional model of clinical trial nursing practice in an oncology clinical trial nurse population.
Design: Web-based cross-sectional survey.
Setting: Online via Qualtrics.
Sample: 167 oncology nurses throughout the United States, including 41 study coordinators, 35 direct care providers, and 91 dual-role nurses who provide direct patient care and trial coordination.
Methods: Principal components analysis was used to determine the dimensions of oncology clinical trial nursing practice.
Main Research Variables: Self-reported frequency of 59 activities.
Findings: The results did not support the original five-dimensional model of nursing care but revealed a more multidimensional model.
Conclusions: An analysis of frequency data revealed an eight-dimensional model of oncology research nursing, including care, manage study, expert, lead, prepare, data, advance science, and ethics.
Implications for Nursing: This evidence-based model expands understanding of the multidimensional roles of oncology nurses caring for patients with cancer enrolled in clinical trials.
