Dear Navigators, Social Workers, Administrators, and Clinical Staff,
The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is hosting its Annual Conference in Dallas, TX, November 15-18 at the Hilton Anatole. In keeping with the popular slogan—Everything's Bigger in Texas—the Ninth Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference is going to be huge! More than 1000 nurse and patient navigators are anticipated to come to Dallas and discuss their role in the perpetually evolving oncology care landscape.
At the conference, you will be exposed to a wealth of valuable information to assist you in your career and personal growth as a navigator. You will have the opportunity to learn about subjects such as clinical trials, challenges in oral oncolytics, genetics and genomics, and navigation metrics, as well as the critical topics of patient engagement, screening, prevention, and management strategies for the patients we serve. You will also have the opportunity to attend disease site–specific breakout sessions, product theaters, and poster presentation by your colleagues and to visit the exhibit hall. As I said, this conference is going to be huge! The only thing missing is you!
I would like to personally invite you to join us at this year's conference in Dallas. It is my hope you will accept the invitation and register today at annual.AONNonline.org.
See you in Texas, y'all.

Sincerely,

 

Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, ONN-CG
Editor-in-Chief, JONS; Program Director, AONN+

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.

Promoting and enhancing survivorship are cornerstones of our mission as navigators. From community outreach efforts to improving quality of life, from managing efficiency throughout the cancer care continuum to implementing strategies to extend life, navigation efforts are primarily intended to improve the patient experience across the continuum of care.
