Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex people comprise approximately 5% of the U.S. population, yet healthcare professional student education on sexual and gender minority (SGM) health is sparse. This study explored the degree to which sociodemographic factors and student affiliation with SGM people explained self-reported competence of healthcare professional students in caring for SGM patients. Survey results from a sample of healthcare professional students attending one urban university (n=48) showed that liberal political affiliation, less religiosity, and greater affiliation with SGM people explained greater SGM cultural competence. Greater number of SGM-specific training hours was associated with greater Clinical Preparedness and affirming Behaviors.

While assisted reproductive technology has made it possible for survivors to take steps to preserve fertility before starting treatment, only a minority of patients proceed with preservation. Patient-, provider-, health system-, and societal-level barriers to fertility preservation exist. Oncofertility patient navigation is a valuable resource for providing patients and families with education, resources, and support to assist with fertility preservation decision-making and reducing oncofertility access barriers.

The 2021 AONN Midyear Conference was held through a proprietary live streaming platform on May 13-16, 2021, and was certified for up to 15.0 contact hours of CE credit. This was a 4-day virtual, live-streamed conference and which provided a forum for an open dialogue among the nurse navigators in attendance who are involved in providing navigation and survivorship care services for patients with cancer. General and breakout sessions focused on the various components involved in optimal patient navigation and will provide a wide array of perspectives on these issues. To further extend the educational reach of the meeting, highlights from the 2021 virtual conference were developed as a Monograph and disseminated to the full AONN membership and the oncology nursing community as a CE-Accredited 8–12-page supplement that will appear in the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship®, The Oncology Nurse-APN/PA®, as well as a digital monograph on the journal websites.
