Nurse Practitioner Fellow - Temporary Full-time
The Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre at Hamilton Health Sciences is a state-of-the-art tertiary health care system that houses the Complex Malignant Hematology (CMH) Service providing comprehensive integrated care for patients with hematological malignancies. Given the specialization of services provided by the CMH Program, patients are referred from local and provincial services. Care is provided in ambulatory hematology clinics, oncology day services, and in a 54 bed in-patient unit. Treatment modalities for patients with malignant hematological disorders include both allogeneic and autologous stem cell transplantation, CAR-T Cell therapy, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
The Nurse Practitioner (NP) Fellow will complete the following requirements:
A) CMH specific competency based curriculum comprised of clinical rotations, didactic education sessions, leadership components
B) Research course and mentorship provided by faculty from the McMaster University School of Nursing
C) Research or continuous quality improvement (CQI) project relevant to advanced nursing practice and CMH Service
Each NP Fellow is matched with a NP Mentor who provides guidance and expert in-field training. Additionally, the NP Fellow works collaboratively with the hematologists and in partnership with NPs, specialists, and members of the interprofessional team to provide comprehensive, evidence based care including medical acts to support a population of patients with complex hematological malignancies.
The NP role in CMH is 80% direct clinical care, while the other domains of the NP role account for 20% (i.e. research, education, leadership, and collaboration/ consultation/ referral).
