Abstract

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: To describe the process of establishing a multisite team to conduct research with a multicultural focus on fatigue. DATA SOURCES: Articles, book chapters, personal experience. DATA SYNTHESIS: Teamwork facilitated development of a productive professional working group, sharing of resources, and data collection culminating in a research proposal for studying cancer-related fatigue in a multicultural population. CONCLUSIONS: Establishing a common goal by investing time, committing to the process, and establishing trust was the secret to effective team functioning. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: The prospect of multi-institutional collaboration has implications for oncology nurses in the areas of research and practice. Goals that could not be achieved easily in the setting of a single institution are reached more easily with multisite collaboration and teamwork.
