Worldwide, cancer remains the second most frequent cause of death in adults and children. A cancer diagnosis often marks the beginning of therapies that may continue over months and years. These therapies frequently consist in surgical interventions in combination with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. For all healthcare professionals involved, cancer also signifies a very complex illness with high demands. It is therefore important to identify research priorities in order to successfully and comprehensively address these demands and to provide high quality patient care. In order to identify research priorities in oncology care in Switzerland, a systematic review of literature was conducted. A total of 30 research priorities emerged from the literature. In accordance with SRAN guidelines, 25 were passed on to the SRAN. The systematic identification of research priorities in oncology nursing has, for the first time, resulted in a list of topics in need of investigation in Switzerland. Completing the list of research priorities for oncology nursing with an updated systematic review of literature and presenting it to a larger and more representative group of oncology nurses, experts, and nurse scientists with oncology nursing experience for assessment and valuation, will be crucial for any future revision of the SRAN. In the future, it will be indispensable to include patients and their families in the process.
