Time to talk about change : investigating effective communication of nursing initiatives & practice changes at the BC Cancer Agency (BCCA) Effa, Elizabeth; Evans, Zoe


The BCCA Provincial Nursing Practice Committee (NPC) realized that their policies, suggestions & recommendations are sometimes incompletely adopted by nurses in direct care. The NPC identified the Communications environment as one possible reason for the lack of translation by the nurses of newly-announced changes into implementation of the new procedures. The committee wanted to understand the Communications environment faced by the nurses & other factors that might prevent nurses from acting upon new procedures, & to identify strategies to address the issue(s).
