Oncology Research Paper - ideas needed

  1. I am completing my final rotation of nursing school on a Hematology/Oncology floor. One of my assignments is to write a research paper (no more than 10 pages) on a 'problem' related to this area of nursing. Although it sounds negative, the 'problem' doesn't have to be something bad - it may just be a gap in knowledge or something. I am having a difficult time coming up with something that is interesting, yet still somewhat basic. Any ideas from experienced oncology nurses, especially those with experience in caring for leukemia patients?

    Have you thought about late effects of treatment on pediatric leukemia survivors? By the year 2000, 1:1000 young adults was a survivor of childhood cancer. As treatment protocols evolved, there was little attention paid to the future price these youngsters would face as they reached late adolescence and adulthood. A lot of research has been done in the last decade with some very alarming issues brought to light. (I know a lot of them but I'm not telling! It would spoil the learning opportunity for you.) I'll bet no one else in your class will think to look at that topic.
