Sarah Cole Hirsh Institute's Latest Topic--Cancer-Related Fatigue


Fatigue continues to be the most prevalent and disruptive symptom of cancer and its treatment regimens. This article located on OJIN (Online Journal of Issues in Nursing) presents an evidence-based review of cancer-related fatigue, strategies for the management of cancer-related fatigue, and recommendations for clinical practice.

The Sarah Cole Hirsh Institute for Best Nursing Practices of the Case Western Reserve University Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Cleveland, Ohio, USA

The Hirsh Institute's mission is to build a repository of best nursing practices based on research findings. Institute activities include: disseminating the most current scientific evidence on best nursing practices to clinicians, educators, administrators, and policy makers; guiding nursing research by identifying areas where scientific evidence is lacking; and conducting certificate programs for nursing staff to identify and implement evidence based practice.

This idea of a repository of best practices is just what the profession needs. After reading the above article, I went to the Hirsh institute and found two other articles relating to home health and hospital discharge planning that will help improve my practice. Karen
