CoC Standards

Lisa Simms Booth discusses how AONN+ and the Biden Cancer Initiative's shared emphasis on data standards and measurable outcomes is essential in creating policy change.
Elaine Sein stresses that standardized metrics illustrate the value and sustainability that navigators bring to the table and expand on how AONN+ created 35 evidence-based navigation-focused metrics.
This educational initiative, derived from the 2017 AONN+ West Coast Regional Meeting, is designed to meet the educational needs of hematology/oncology nurse navigators and registered nurses; other healthcare professionals, such as patient navigators and social workers who have a focus on cancer and survivorship, are encouraged to participate.
I was privileged to chair a task force for the purpose of revisiting this standard and determining what issues lay within it that are barriers to cancer centers being able to achieve it. Upon the creation of such recommended changes, another task force for which I also served, reviewed these recommendations, and, I am pleased to say, approved them. Hot off the press, here is information that you get to hear even before it is announced to accredited facilities.
Documentation by oncology patient navigators can play an important role in your cancer program’s efforts to comply with the new Commission on Cancer (CoC) Standards that became effective in 2015. This blog reviews documentation-tool compliance—in other words—how your documentation tools can help you demonstrate compliance with CoC Standard 3.1 Patient Navigation Process and Standard 3.2 Psychosocial Distress Screening.
Vicki Kennedy, Danelle Johnston, and Tricia Strusowski reflect on when and how to best begin implementing standardized metrics, suggesting it might be best to start small and to build relationships in order to build a tangible case to make about the value of the navigator.
Lillie Shockney explains how she and AONN+ are working towards encouraging the reevaluation of CoC standard 3.3 (on survivorship care plans) in order to measure compliance and success more accurately.
Tricia Strusowski explains how the AONN+ standardized navigation metrics perfectly complement and support CoC standards.
Barbara Dearmon reviews some of the most commonly asked questions surrounding becoming or remaining CoC compliant.
Barbara Dearmon feels that AONN+ standardized metrics will support CoC standards and help set a standard of care.
