Seminars in Oncology Nursing
Objective: To describe a novel structure designed to integrate nursing research into the Children's Oncology Group (COG). Data Sources: Review articles, reports, and newsletters. Conclusion: A new structure using nurse researcher-advanced practice nurse dyads has successfully integrated nurse researchers into COG scientific activity, as evidenced by the development of concept proposals, companion protocols, nursing objectives in therapeutic trials, and nurse-led publications. Implications for Nursing Practice: This provides a promising method for integrating nurse researchers and increasing multidisciplinary research collaboration in cooperative oncology group. © 2005 Elsevier Inc.
