Definition and coordination of roles and responsibilities among cancer center clinic and research personnel.
This survey looked at how cancer center clinic and research personnel define their roles and responsibilities. A survey was developed that incorporated modified components of the Survey of Physician Attitudes Regarding the Care of Cancer Survivors and was administered to clinic nursing staff and research personnel at a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. Surveys were completed by 105 staff members (50 research staff, 55 clinic staff, 61% response rate). Research staff were more likely to feel that they had the skills to answer questions, convey information, and provide education for patients. Less than one-third of clinic and research staff reported ever receiving communication about responsibilities. There was also substantial variation in the preferred model for delivery to care of patients in clinical trials.
