Educational Needs and Strategies of Pediatric Oncology Nurses in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: An International Society of Pediatric Oncology Pediatric Oncology in Developing Countries Nursing Working Group Initiative. There is no existing pediatric oncology nursing curriculum written specifically for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), where 80% of children with cancer reside. In 2012, the International Society of Pediatric Oncology Nursing Working Group sought to address this gap with a 3-phase study. Phase 1: identify educational priorities of LMIC nurses providing oncology care. Phase 2: solicit educational strategies from expert pediatric oncology nurses. Phase 3: develop a culturally adaptable modular curriculum framework based on LMIC nurses' priorities.
