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

The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) just concluded the Midyear Conference. For those who attended, I hope you found the sessions informative and energizing! For those who were unable to attend, I would strongly encourage you to join us this November 6-10 in Nashville, Tennessee, to not only enhance your career goals but to help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Academy!

We have made such significant strides in the past decade in establishing oncology navigation as a critical element of the cancer care team. From showing the effectiveness of navigation in impacting survival to our success in improving the patient experience, there is no denying that navigators are an important part of oncology care delivery.

In an effort to assist our readers in developing their navigation programs, we offer bimonthly installments of Establishing a Successful Navigation Program. In each installment, you will hear from clinical navigator leaders at Sarah Cannon and patient navigators at the American Cancer Society. This month, they tackle the topics of setting goals for a navigation program, collecting data, and measuring impact. I hope their insights inspire you to set goals and utilize the AONN+ metrics to demonstrate your impact!

As you continue to grow in your career as a navigator, and AONN+ continues to grow in our mission to serve you, we need to remember to take the time to celebrate our collective accomplishments. What better way to do so than together at the AONN+ Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference? Make a commitment to attend by registering at Annual.AONNonline.org. See you in Nashville!

Sincerely,

Lillie Digital Signature
