University of Nebraska Medical Center
Approved: December 2012
Grant Period: January 2013 – August 2013
In order to efficiently support the most relevant and effective education for clinicians managing patients with hematologic malignancies (HM), there must be an understanding of the existing educational gaps. CE Outcomes and Nebraska propose to utilize a qualitative and quantitative approach to understand the educational needs of oncologists/hematologists, oncology nurses, and pathologists to accelerate the adoption of evidence-based innovations to optimally manage patients with HM. While the RFP specifically requested analysis of oncologists/hematologists, opening the assessment to a wider array of clinicians allows for an overall perspective and insight into the decision-making process of the team that manages patients with HM.
