American Association for Cancer Research/ONS Research Session: Epigenetics and Cancer

Epigenetic mechanisms control gene expression without changing the DNA sequence itself. Recent research progress has shown that epigenetic pathways may provide new therapeutic avenues in cancer. It is now apparent that changes in epigenetic control of gene expression in cancer cells, and surrounding cells in the tumor microenvironment, play a fundamental role in driving tumor development, as well as response to chemotherapy and immune treatment. Come to understand epigenetic effector pathways involved in tumor biology and new approaches to target these pathways in cancer treatment.

Objectives

  1. Understand epigenetic pathways in cancer.
  2. Discuss current research in the area of epigenetics in cancer.
  3. Describe how epigenetic pathways can be targeted for new cancer therapies.

Implementation of Evidence in Practice: Policy or Secret Sauce?

This provocative session will debate the varying viewpoints of implementing evidence and best practices into clinical care. With different approaches for assessment and management of a clinical challenge, how are external guidelines or institutional policies really adapted? Are patient care and outcomes truly improved, or is it all smoke and mirrors? Join this dynamic discussion to unravel the mystery.

Data Science: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities for Nursing Research

Data science is cutting-edge science and so much more than computers and statistics. Using large data sets has its challenges, but it is extremely valuable in moving oncology nursing science forward. In this prestigious lecture, you’ll address various aspects of data science and how it impacts nursing research. Barbara Cochrane, PhD, RN, FAAN, will share her experience with using the women’s health initiative dataset, how it has vastly moved science and clinical practice forward, and how you can continue to be informed by—and inform—data science.

Distinguished Nurse Researcher Award Lecture: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by…” Reflections of an Oncology Palliative Care Researcher

Marie Bakitas, DNSc, CRNP, AOCN®, FAAN has had a sustained program of substantive research, focused primarily on the issues of persons with cancer that has spanned 30 years. Her trajectory is unique, in that she began making significant research contributions as a member of an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center prior to earning her doctoral degree in 2006. Toward the end of the 1990s, Dr. Bakitas realized that while pain and symptom management of patients with cancer was improving, the overall progressive illness and end-of-life experience was in critical need of attention. She and her colleagues developed ENABLE (Educate, Nurture, Advise Before Life Ends). The ENABLE early palliative care approach became the primary focus of her subsequent research career. In 2001, when most oncology professionals were unaware of the potential benefit of early palliative care, Dr. Bakitas received the ONS/Trish Greene Quality of Life Lectureship award to present the findings of Project ENABLE. The lecture described how she made a philosophical shift in her oncology nursing clinical career to focus solely on palliative care. Discover how her clinical and research careers have intermingled with and impacted the evolving evidence supporting the integration of the fields of palliative and oncology care.
