Dear Colleague,

It is with great excitement that I introduce the first issue for 2012 of the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship. I’m proud of what we accomplished in 2011 – there has been some outstanding research highlighted on these pages in the past year, and I’m quite sure that this year will bring an even greater array of resources to assist both healthcare providers and patients, who are at the heart of it all.

This month’s issue features original research that focuses on 2 areas of improving patient care:

  • Helping patients contribute positively to the outcome of their own disease by mitigating risk factors
  • Retaining patients within a healthcare setting/system to better aid in continuity of care

Keep in mind that this journal is for you and about you and should reflect the current state of the specialty as it evolves. With that in mind, please continue to reach out with ideas, suggestions, and contributions for content since you know best what resources there are to be shared with your peers and where there are knowledge gaps that we can help to fill. Please pass this publication along to your colleagues as well. Since we believe that JONS offers valuable content for a whole host of healthcare professionals, we would love their input on issues and areas of interest to help cancer patients navigate through their journey.

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.
