Nursing Advisory Board

The Nursing Advisory Board is comprised of nursing and allied health professionals practicing in cancer research centers throughout the US and UK with expertise in care of patients with cholangiocarcinoma. Their goal is to advance the scientific knowledge of the symptom experience and quality of life of patients with cholangiocarcinoma. This is being accomplished through collaboration with the Medical Advisory Board in the development and publication of Clinical Nursing Practice Guidelines (CNPG’s) for patients with cholangiocarcinoma. The CNPG’s include essential content for practice to enable the nurse to feel confident and competent in the care of patients with cholangiocarcinoma.
The Nursing Advisory Board conducted a systematic review to assess the current state of nursing knowledge consistent with national standards and guidelines of care previously established along with current institutional practice. The CNPG’s model utilizes the nursing process with a summarized guideline format to include Goals/Outcomes of Care, Assessment and Interventions with references for each. References have been reviewed utilizing the John Hopkins Nursing Evidence Rating Scale.
The CNPG’s available are:
  • Care of the patient with external biliary drains and internal bile duct stents
  • Care of the patient with intractable nausea and vomiting
  • Care of the patient with fatigue
  • Care of the patient on weekly Gemcitabine and Cisplatin
  • Care of the patient receiving photon radiation
  • Care of the patient receiving protons on a clinical trial
  • Care of the patient preparing for liver transplantation
  • Care of the patient with ineffective coping and mindfulness
