Nurse Navigators Learn from Each Other

TON - October 2010, Vol. 3, No 7 published on October 22, 2010 in Conference Correspondent

More than 400 navigators came together for 2 days of education, networking, and professional development, all with the goal of improving oncology patient care and quality of life. At its First Annual Navigation and Survivorship Conference, the Academy of Oncology Nurse Navigators (AONN) welcomed all team members involved in these crucial aspects of patient care—nurses, social workers, lay navigators, navigation and survivorship program administrators—from throughout the country and around the world.

From providing nurses with tips for incorporating best practices into their navigation to detailing procedures to prove the value and impact of navigation services to implementing survivorship clinics and navigation programs, the conference kept navigators engaged and interacting with the speakers and among themselves.

From more than 50 nominations, the Academy recognized three outstanding programs and three nurse navigators for the contributions to the field. To read why they were chosen, see the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship.


In-depth coverage of the material presented will be available in a special issue of the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship and online at www.AONNonline.org.
