Translational research has been defined as "bench-to-bedside" research or "laboratory-to-clinical" research. Benefits to this type of research are that it fast tracks biomedical advances to improve the quality of care and life for patients with cancer (Callard, Rose, & Wykes, 2011). The challenge, however, is translating the research findings to the bedside in a timely fashion. Burns and Foley (2005) described an estimated 20-year delay in getting research findings translated to care delivery.
