Abstract

Results

Enhancing factors important to the lead cancer nurses were the ability to: utilize decision-making power, build alliances and accommodate to a changing environment. Factors found to hinder achievement were: major changes in service and policy, restricted resources and the cancer site-specific structure of health service provisions. Further and greater contributions to cancer care from lead nurses require influential partnerships within local health care organizations and wider networks.
