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

Have you attended a meeting of the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+)? This could be your year to join us, meet your fellow navigator colleagues, and strengthen your professional skills! Speaking from personal experience, I return from each of our AONN+ conferences feeling rejuvenated, motivated, and confident in my abilities as a navigator. And I want the same for each of you.

In this issue of the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship, I am delighted to present coverage from our recent annual conference beginning with an impassioned keynote address from Dr Jill Biden, who discussed “The Urgency of Now” in the cancer landscape. AONN+ coverage continues with articles about the AONN+ NAVmetrics Study, immunotherapy, and a melanoma survivor’s story. You’ll read about everything from male cancer screening to cancer rehabilitation; from oral oncolytics to “supercharging” your navigation program. It’s all in here—all the topics that impact your ability to improve patient care and outcomes.

Think that’s great? Why not make the commitment to be a part of our next live event? The 2019 AONN+ Midyear Conference will be held May 17-19, 2019, in San Diego, California. Our goal is to advance the navigation profession by expanding the scope of educational sessions, networking opportunities, and industry-sponsored sessions. Our speakers will address the evolving challenges of program improvement, the role of personalized medicine, and implementing best practices in navigation. It’s also the time to consider taking the AONN+ Certification Exams. You need to be there—it will be an educational event to remember.
