I am relatively new to the nurse manager role. I managed 40 employees on a medical oncology unit. I would love to meet similar nurses
does anyone know the venue for the novartis talk tonite at 630?
My organization lacks organization in tracking chemo treatment. We get admits neutropenia etc, and our only source of information on treatment history comes from the patient and family, who are most often unsure. Obviously we're lacking in the patient education department and I'm working on that... Does anyone use a resource to track cancer treatment that follows the patient throughout their care?
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Congress!

The Park, unfortunately is 40 mins/34 miles away. The Zoo sound more doable. Admission is $37 and it’s open until 6PM however I read 5 PM last week when I checked. Maybe someone can confirm that if you are interested. The earliest I could leave the hotel is, well, not exactly sure - may... [read more]
Would it be okay to make it standard on certain acceptable diagnosis to place midline?It saves nurses time to re start IVs , it can be decided later to just exchange wire when MD thinks of long term antibiotics. Patient comfort is important. However, this needs very good care from the floor nurses to really pay attention to the care of this midline. Sepsis, blood clot , can happen. Will the benefit outweigh the complications that can happen? As t... [read more]

Hi Everyone - I count 36 days until congress. As the congress team leader this year, it seems like we've been planning for a year. WAIT...we have been planning for a year. I am very excited to see it all come together. If anyone has questions for me, please ask and I will try to be good about checking in. See you in San Diego.

The hotels in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego are just a few minutes walk from the Convention Center and much more reasonably priced. My co-workers and I booked rooms using this website: www.easyclicktravel.com We booked rooms at beautiful boutique hotel for $111/night - no need to share rooms at that price! For those really on a budget San Diego offers some good hostel and European style hotel bargains. (private room with shared bath)
I am excited about congress, but need a roommate to help pay the the hotel bill.
