Dear Navigators, Social Workers, Administrators, and Clinical Staff,

How do you establish a successful navigation program? The answers are right here in these pages! We are a nationwide community of clinical and lay navigators, and it’s our pleasure and point of pride to offer you the tools, resources, and evidence-based research to assist you in the evolution of your navigation program through the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) and the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators.

We’ve enlisted authors from 2 of the nation’s leading navigation programs—Sarah Cannon and the American Cancer Society—to contribute articles presenting their expertise on an array of topics in a new exclusive bimonthly department entitled “Establishing a Successful Navigation Program.”

In this first installment, we invited Katherine Sharpe, MTS, Senior Vice President, Patient and Caregiver Support, and Kathy Scheid, Senior Manager, Patient Navigation North Region of the American Cancer Society, as well as Crystal Dugger, RN, BSN, MBA, Assistant Vice President, Clinical Operations of Sarah Cannon, to contribute the lay and clinical perspectives, respectively, on the benefits of a navigation program. It is our hope that this department along with our original research, interview, and educational offerings enhance your career in navigation.

As always, thank you for making JONS part of your navigation practice.

Sincerely,

Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, ONN-CG
