Navigation

At the recent AONN+ Annual Conference, experts in oncology navigation convened virtually with conference attendees to offer their insights in furthering the efficacy of navigation. This monograph will review the proceedings from 4 key sessions covering the timely topics of telehealth, mental health and the oncology patient, prehabilitation and rehabilitation, and value-based oncology care.
Oncology and patient navigators should be trained and skilled in data analytics to show the return on investment of the navigation role and improve patient care.
The authors present findings from their study aiming to examine the associations between the Independent Specialty Medical Advocate model of patient navigation and intermediate patient health outcomes in newly diagnosed patients.
Community navigators help those with an unequal burden of cancer, which is often heaviest among racial/ethnic minorities, patients with lower socioeconomic status, and residents of rural areas who do not have equal access to healthcare systems and do not always receive timely, standard care when confronted with a cancer diagnosis.
A beautiful case study exemplifying the power of navigation when executed in collaboration with the patient, caregivers, and care team.
Dr Burhansstipanov emphasized the importance of coordination between NPNs and nurse navigators. “Our navigators have worked beautifully with nurse navigators,” she said at the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators 7th Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference.
The authors present their findings from a patient satisfaction study conducted 1 year after the establishment of an oncology nurse navigation program to collect patient feedback and discover opportunities for improvements.
We are greatly looking forward to the Seventh Annual Conference of the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) in Las Vegas.
The objective of this project is to present a nationwide picture of the ACS navigation program, using newly standardized reporting.
