Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To trace the evolution of oncology nursing research and to discuss its contribution to oncology nursing practice and health care.

DATA SOURCES:

Articles, textbooks, organizational documents, conference proceedings, and personal communication.

CONCLUSIONS:

Placing research in perspective will help suggest where we should go as a nursing specialty to provide excellent cancer care to patients, families, communities, and populations. It will also suggest directions for research priorities and for conceptual, methodologic, and health policy activities.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE:

To influence oncology care, it is essential that oncology nurse researchers be responsive to trends that are relevant to both the conduct and utilization of oncology nursing research.
