Abstract

Background: The nursing management of the Oncology Institute of Southern Switzerland (IOSI), which is a “Comprehensive Cancer Center” in the Tessin canton, in 2010 it has been activated a series of initiative for pushing the development of culture oriented research and to the “evidence based practice” through their operators. A office for the development and for nursing research has been created and has led an internal survey, an internal network has been created of referent person for the nursing research and has started multi periodical training initiative. However there was a lack of a continuous communication support, between various operators although belonging to the same Institute they are distributed in a large territory. Material and Methods: With the informatics department it has been decided to use the SharePoint, as it is a flexible tool, modular and interactive. Afterwards a mixed working group has been defined (nurse and head department) for developing the structure and the content. In more or less 2 months this sharepoint of the nursing research has been prepared,tested on a little group of colleague and therefore implemented. Results: From March 2011, all the Nurse staff is linked with the SharePoint in which they can follow 8 different paths to know what happen inside and outside the Institute (experiences, projects, useful link, oncology oriented publication and various initiative) and to have the opportunity to have a direct comparison with the colleagues. Only few persons have the possibility to modify the structure of the sharepoint, meanwhile for the others there is the possibility to see it and to interact expressing proposals or pointing out topics of discussion and/or deepen. For each new communication in two specific sectors (news or blogs) there is an alert sent out instantly via e-mail to all the on-line people. Conclusions: The sharepoint of the Nursing Research is an important tool of communication in the Institute to encourage the information sharing, the circulation of the best professional evidence and the sharing experience and proposals. However the tool alone isn’t enough, it become an important tool only if included in a integrated project of improvement of care quality and of development of professional culture oriented to the nurse research and of the using evidence in the own professional practice.
