2019 Midyear Conference
This educational initiative is directed toward hematology and oncology nurse navigators, patient navigators, oncology social workers, administrators, case managers, care managers, oncology nurses, advanced practice nurses and nurse practitioners, and practice managers whose focus is on cancer care, navigation and survivorship.
Although Sunday only allowed for a half-day of events, its bounty of sessions provided a grand finale to the conference. General sessions focused on hot topics such as cancer legal issues, sexuality and cancer, and cancer nutrition. Four breakout sessions gave attendees opportunities to learn more about new developments in hematologic cancers, primary prevention, improving collaboration among disciplines, and understanding neuroendocrine and colorectal cancers.
With a full schedule of engaging activities awaiting them on Saturday, navigators in attendance greeted the day early, abuzz over breakfast. Sessions covering navigation acuity, precision medicine, palliative care, and access to clinical trials for adolescents and young adults provided abundant learning opportunities. Enhancing the day’s events were Sponsored Knowledge Exchange Sessions and time to peruse the wide array of offerings in the Exhibit Hall.
Anticipation for the AONN+ Midyear 2019 Conference in the Golden State was so great that some attendees couldn’t wait for it to begin. Fortunately, they didn’t have to, with 2 morning preconference sessions kicking off a compelling slate of events throughout the weekend. Focusing on grant writing and financial navigation, these intensive sessions served as informative precursors to the day’s remaining events. Over lunch, a spirited welcome to beautiful San Diego from AONN+ leadership added to the excitement, getting navigators from all around the country enthused for 3 days of education, networking, and, of course, the gorgeous views of the waves along the shoreline.
