Dear Navigators,

Not only do navigators have an obligation to their patients, institutions, and themselves to understand and master core competencies of navigation, but they also need to remain up-to-date on the clinical information that impacts their patients. In addition to our presentations of original, peer-reviewed, navigation research articles, it is also our goal to present you with important information from leading oncology meetings in an effort to keep you apprised of the most relevant clinical advances in our field.

In this issue, we present original research as well as coverage from recent oncology meetings. On the navigation front, we feature articles from our own Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) West Coast Regional Meeting. To expand our clinical knowledge, we cover topics from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Association for Cancer Research, and the Association of Community Cancer Centers. It is our sincere hope this information is stimulating and helpful to you in your practice.

On behalf of all of us at the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) and AONN+, we applaud your efforts in navigation—both as a pioneer in this relatively new field within oncology nursing and as a dedicated member of the oncology multidisciplinary team. We are here to support you, encourage you, and empower you because your efforts impact patients’ lives for the better every day.

As always, thank you for your loyal readership and for being a part of our navigation community.

Sincerely,

Lillie Digital Signature
