Category VIII: Survivorship and End of Life

October 2022 Vol 13, No 10 —November 7, 2022

Throughout the seasons of survival, healthcare providers should continually offer the components of survivorship care in the forms of prevention through health and wellness promotion, surveillance for recurrence and screening for new cancers, intervention for management of lasting physical and psychosocial effects, and coordination of care for the cancer survivor.

Potential topics in Category VIII include:

  • Transition from treatment to survivorship
  • Referrals to support services at the survivorship visit
  • Palliative care referrals
  • Hospice referrals
  • Bereavement programs

This year, there are no accepted abstracts within this research category. We encourage the navigation community to conduct research in this important category of cancer care and submit research abstracts to AONN+ in 2023.
