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

What is the role of an oncology nurse navigator in the growing world of precision medicine?

How do I expose nutrition myths to my patients?

How do I broach the topic of sex after cancer?

What do I need to know about treating mentally ill patients with cancer?

What are the cancer-related legal and financial issues facing my patients?

How do I balance my own compassion satisfaction in such a demanding job?

Oncology navigation encompasses countless topics in the world of oncology. The questions above are all addressed in this issue—but they represent just the very tip of an ever-growing iceberg. The Editorial Board of the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) and the Leadership Council of the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) understand that your job as a navigator is multifaceted, complex, and increasingly important. To address all the topics relevant to oncology nurse and patient navigators, the leaders of JONS and AONN+ incorporate dynamic presentations by key thought leaders on the topics impacting your job, your role, and your well-being.

In these pages, on our website, and at our conferences, you’ll gain the insights and expertise that help you to maximize your impact as a navigator. And you’ll experience the support of a community that shares your goals. Together, we’ll tackle the topics that matter most to you and our growing community.

Next on the agenda? The 10th Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference! Please join the AONN+ community as we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Academy on November 6-10, 2019, in Nashville, TN. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

Lillie Digital Signature
