Interview with the Innovators

An Interview with Maria Kadlec, BSN, RN; Caryn M. Vadseth, BSN, RN, OCN; and Mary Pat Winterhalter, MS, BSN, RN, NE-BC
Drs Geoffrey Oxnard and Lauren Ritterhouse discuss the challenges and opportunities of precision medicine and molecular biomarkers in their clinical practice from an oncologist’s and a pathologist’s perspective.
Drs Geoffrey Oxnard and Lauren Ritterhouse discuss the best ways oncologists and pathologists can communicate about molecular biomarker testing for individual patients as well as on strategies for incorporating new biomarkers into testing panels.
Drs Roy Herbst and David Rimm review how biomarker testing has transformed the way patients with lung cancer are treated, and how both medical oncologists and pathologists contribute to these changes.
Drs Roy Herbst and David Rimm consider novel ways that surgeons, interventional radiologists, pulmonologists, medical oncologists, and pathologists interact at Yale Cancer Center to maximize the use of common molecular biomarkers, as well as NGS and TMB, in providing precision medicine to lung cancer patients.
In 2005 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) issued a report recommending that every cancer patient receive an individualized survivorship care plan that includes guidelines for monitoring and maintaining their health. We discussed this topic with our Editor-in-Chief, Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, ONN-CG, to understand their purpose and contents, and the role of oncology professionals in their creation and dissemination.
JONS talks to Ms Allison and Ms Melton about their experiences as navigators, the critical touch points they have with patients, and how coordinating care is executed at their institutions.
An Interview with Oncology Financial Navigator Clara Lambert of Cowell Family Cancer Center
In an effort to understand a day in the life of a thoracic navigator, we spent some time with Wendy Brooks, RN, ONN-CG. Ms Brooks obtained her certification as generalist oncology nurse navigator through the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) and was instrumental in the development of the AONN+ specialty certification exam in thoracic oncology.
NCRA President Barbara Dearmon speaks with JONS about the crucial role of cancer registries and the implications for oncology nurse navigators.
