The EXPERT Study. Defining characteristics of cancer nursing expertise

Project Details

This mixed-methods study sets out to examine and define the construct of cancer nursing expertise as described by nurses working across Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre Alliance partners. To date there has been little national or international research exploring the construct of nursing expertise in cancer settings, hampering ability to identify cancer nursing-sensitive outcomes amenable to targeting in future nurse-led trials.
