Dear Colleague,

Each year, we take time to acknowledge the things for which we are most grateful. Of course, family and health immediately come to mind, but there are also several things in my professional life for which I am grateful. In September we hosted the Second Annual Navigation and Survivorship Conference, the official national meeting of the Academy of Oncology Nurse Navigators (AONN). At this meeting, more than 400 nurse and patient navigators gathered to discuss the changing landscape of patient navigation and survivorship care for patients with cancer and to define ways to further develop the profession. Over the 3 days of the conference, attendees were able to make new connections with members in their field, share best practices, and learn from each others’ experiences. It is this sort of exchange that has tremendous impact on our ability to better care for our patients. And for this opportunity to connect with others in this field, I am truly grateful.

In this issue, we are proud to present the proceedings from the meeting and hope the information presented is beneficial to your practice.

On behalf of all of us at AONN and the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship, I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and all the best in 2012.

With best regards
Lillie D. Shockney
RN, BS, MAS Editor-in-Chief

Some days it's hard to laugh and easy to cry, especially when confronted with the harsh reality of cancer. But according to Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, ONN-CG, Director of Cancer Survivorship Programs at Johns Hopkins, finding humor in the day-to-day can actually boost the immune system and improve the overall health of patients with cancer.
