The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant changes to the delivery of healthcare while increasing care needs in certain areas. In this article, the authors present the journey their comprehensive cancer center underwent to implement telemedicine service for a short period during the COVID-19 pandemic, lessons learned from the process, and future directions for telemedicine use in cancer care.

Networks Leadership Interviews: A Deeper Look into Development
Available for Credit: February 25, 2021 - March 31, 2022
To further explore more detailed information about local network development (LNN) , five LNN leaders were invited to participate in phone interviews. Hands on knowledge from active leaders can help others seeking to build or sustain effective networks as they have a look into LNN successes and challenges, developmental resources, program strategy and evaluation. The voice of experienced LNN leaders can point out unique findings to enrich navigation programs.

Collaboration on Building and Sustaining Local Navigator Networks
Available for Credit: February 25, 2021 - March 31, 2022
The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) has encouraged local navigation network (LNN) formation in communities since 2015 with basic foundational structure to allow individuality of local groups. A survey was sent to LNN leaders to capture the groups composition, meeting structure, as well as successes and best practices in implementing, developing, and sustaining networking at the local level. The survey provided rich insight into what is going well for LNNs as well as ideas for improvement that existing or future groups can use to successful cultivate LNNs.

The 2020 AONN+ Annual Conference was held on Nov 4-8, 2020, virtually online. The contents of the below noted sessions were summarized into this monograph. Within this monograph, the learner will have the opportunity to explore four themes important to the profession of oncology navigation including: Navigating the Waters of Telehealth: Impact on the Practice of Oncology Navigation, Navigating Mental Health and Cancer: What’s an Oncology Nurse and Patient Navigator to Do?, Prehab & Rehab for Oncology Patients, Value-Based Care and Alternative Payment Models: An Overview. To further extend the reach of the print monograph, it will be available online for one year at aonnonline.org

This article provides details on a cross-sectional study investigating the prevalence of survivorship care plan (SCP) receipt and exploring associations between SCPs and patient-reported psychosocial and health behavior outcomes in a sample of cancer survivors (N = 123) enriched with individuals with a family history of cancer. Study results suggest that SCPs are infrequently provided and not uniformly implemented, even among patients at higher risk based on a family history of cancer. Findings also provide initial support for the association between written care plans and psychological distress and coping self-efficacy, constructs which have implications for cancer survivors’ communication with providers, psychosocial adjustment, and seeking/understanding medical information. The online monograph will be available for 1 CE credit hour: www.aonnonline.org

This course will highlight navigation models of delivery so that navigators can advocate for patients with cancer by utilizing evidenced based shared decision -making tools, best practices in coordinating care, and assessment strategies in addressing barriers to care. The monograph will be available for 1 CE credit hour: www.aonnonline.org

Biomarker Testing and Adjuvant Therapy in Early-Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Available for Credit: October 23, 2020 - October 23, 2021
This webinar will review new developments in biomarker testing to personalize adjuvant therapy options in early-stage non-small cell lung cancer and highlight roles for the oncology navigator in providing education and coordinating care for patients.

Patient Navigation Effect on Cancer Patients’ Quality of Life and Distress
Available for Credit: October 1, 2020 - October 31, 2021
This study prospectively assessed the effect of a navigation program on both distress and health-related quality of life (QOL) in 297 cancer patients. The navigation program consists of nurse navigators and multiple support services including an integrative medicine clinic. Cancer patients who had navigators were evaluated at enrollment and again at 3, 6, 12, and 18 months. At each time point patients were administered The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) distress thermometer (DT) and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy – General (FACT-G). Patients were asked to list the cancer support services they had used since their last study check-in. DT scores, FACT-G total scores, subscales physical well-being, functional well-being, and emotional well-being all significantly improved from 6 to 18 months after enrollment. Both high and low users of the program had improved DT, total FACT-G, and various FACT-G subscales. Patients expressed high satisfaction with navigation.
