The first annual Cancer Nurse Coordinator Initiative (CNCI) evaluation report has drawn on a number of data sources, including:
  • a specific Cancer Nurse Coordinator (CNC) database that provides information about the activity and function of the nurses a CNC online survey which profiles CNCs and their activities, contribution and perceived effect on patient experience
  • a provider online survey to assess understanding and perceived effects on patient experience
  • a patient survey to assess patient experience of the new role and its contribution
  • qualitiative interviews.
The data collected to inform the 2014 annual report provides high level insight into implementation of the CNCI and shows that:
  • the CNCI is implemented across 20 DHBs using four delivery models that reflect DHBs’ existing cancer care structures and population profile
  • CNCs have an important role in the treatment team and contribute to improving communication between health professionals about patient care
  • CNCs are seen to be contributing to a more coordinated patient journey and making a difference to patients and their family/Whānau.
  • The evaluation provider is looking at enhancing the data collection tools to further improve data quality for the 2015 annual report.
