The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant changes to the delivery of healthcare while increasing care needs in certain areas. To decrease the risk of transmitting the novel coronavirus to patients and healthcare workers, care providers have had to make major changes in their practice, such as increased use of telemedicine services. Many cancer centers also had to modify their cancer care while adopting telemedicine in a very short time.

Since 2015, the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) has encouraged local navigator network (LNN) formation in communities. A network is a group of navigators composed of anyone working in or supportive of the navigation role who chooses to meet in their local region to share strategies, experiences, and resources to increase empowerment and a sense of community. The LNN leader is required to be a member of AONN+ and hold 4 meetings throughout the year. In 2019, the American Cancer Society (ACS) received a Merck Foundation grant to develop a paper outlining effective strategies for the development, implementation, and sustainability of LNNs. The navigation leaders from ACS reached out to AONN+ leadership to collaborate on the development of the paper.

In 2019, the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) collaborated with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to develop a paper outlining effective strategies for the development, implementation, and sustainability of local navigator networks (LNNs). To understand the experiences of existing AONN+ LNNs, a 45-item multiple-choice and open-ended survey to capture LNN composition, meeting structure, as well as successes, best practices, and challenges, was e-mailed to 23 LNNs that had been operational for at least 1 full year (see “The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators and the American Cancer Society Survey: Collaboration on Building and Sustaining Local Navigator Networks” in this issue for results). Following the quantitative survey, 5 LNN leaders were invited to participate in follow-up phone interviews to explore more detailed information about local network development.
