Author on Call

The function of the “Author on Call” blog is to allow our readers and authors to interact with each other in a unique way. A few select authors will be chosen to share on the blog aspects of their papers that were especially meaningful to them personally or points that may not have made it into their published report. Readers will then have the opportunity to provide comments and questions, to which the authors will respond.

At times, as seen in our first entry, we will also post separate entries to the blog on various special topics that we feel would be informational or that we welcome your feedback on.

What Is Cancer Nursing Research?

To our readers:

An editorial is a very particular genre of writing for the public eye. It can purposefully be used to elicit our thoughtful considerations of a point that may have previously escaped our laser focus, or offer a different view of a controversial issue with which we have struggled, or inspire us to address what we may have left undone. An editorial is not meant to be neutral or a restatement of what is. This issue of CANCER NURSING: An International Journal of Cancer Care contains a guest editorial from Dr. Ann O’Mara, a program leader at the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health in the United States. Her words courageously invite us to revisit the words ‘cancer nursing research’.

I welcome your responses.
