A new collaborative practice: critical care and hematology/oncology--altering the misconceptions

A new collaborative practice: critical care and hematology/oncology--altering the misconceptions

Critical Care Nursing Quarterly 18(4): 61-65

For the two decades of development, intensive care units and hematology/oncology units have been separate entities, very territorial over their patient populations and precise in their expertise. The interactions between these units were minimal, and, therefore, many misconceptions have developed through the years. Some of these views have truth, and others are challengeable. A competitive rivalry has often developed between these two areas of expertise. However, with new technologies and therapies being investigated, these two units are interfacing to benefit patient care. Misconceptions can lead to fragmented care of the patient; poor communication between staff, units, patients and family members; and an increased stress level. The intent of this article is to define some of the most common misconceptions between these two disciplines and increase an understanding of each discipline's contribution to the well-being of the patient.
