AONN+ Standardized Metrics

Danielle Carnival recognizes that data standardization is a huge problem in cancer care, and notes that the AONN+ standardized navigation metrics are a giant step toward making progress in this area.
The first discussions about value-based metrics development for oncology navigation took place in November 2015 at the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) Annual Conference. Key stakeholders within the AONN+ membership identified an opportunity to develop quality outcome measures for navigation.
The authors present findings from a focus group assessing the current state of administrative engagement in individual navigation programs.
AONN+ is excited to announce a partnership with Oncology Solutions, LLC, and the American Cancer Society to execute a national navigation metrics quality study.
To advance quality patient care and ensure all parties are working toward a common goal, navigators must integrate with oncology/hematology physician practices. At the AONN+ 8th Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference, Tricia Strusowski, RN, MS discussed approaches to integration.
The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators and Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, have announced their partnership in a pilot validation study of the 35 AONN+ standardized metrics for navigation programs.
AONN+ leaders Cheryl Bellomo and Danelle Johnston discuss the importance of collecting data from the newly-established 35 AONN+ metrics then analyzing and reporting the findings to create best practices.
