High grade gliomas have one of the worst prognoses of all cancers with a median survival 15 months and 5-year survival of 5.6%. In order to ensure timely access to adjuvant treatment after surgical resection, interprofessional communication is critical. We implemented a nurse-driven electronic follow-up list through our EMR to facilitate weekly interprofessional discussions between the neuro-oncologist, neurosurgeon, and oncology nurse navigator. The goal of this study was to determine if this follow up list reduced the time it took for patients to follow-up with the neuro-oncologist, receive radiation therapy, and receive chemotherapy. The study sample included patients with mostly high-grade glioma who had unplanned (i.e. urgent) surgery, since these patients are thought to be most at risk for delayed follow-up. The study found that patients were more likely to follow up within 2 weeks, and receive chemotherapy within 30 days after the follow-up list was implemented. The improvement was especially noticed in patients who did not have insurance, since they were able to be enrolled in charity care programs at our institution early in their post-operative period.

The Tenth Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference was held on November 6-10, 2019, at The Gaylord Opryland Convention Center which was a 4½ -day live conference plus enduring materials, for which content has been developed, assessed, and delivered to a large audience in order to extend the educational impact beyond the initial live program. The conference 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. In order to extend the reach of the live program to include oncology nurses and nurse/patient navigators who were not able to attend the live conference, a summary highlights monograph from the live program will be hosted for a period of one year on: https://www.aonnonline.org and will be certified for up to 1 contact hour.

Available for Credit: September 17, 2019 - October 16, 2022
Survival rates among young cancer patients have steadily increased over the past four decades in part because of the development of more effective cancer treatments. Today, both women and men can look forward to life after cancer, yet many may face the possibility of infertility as a result of the disease itself or these lifesaving treatments. This webinar will highlight emerging topics in oncofertility as well as introduce interventions strategies that all healthcare providers, especially nurse and patient navigators need in order to provide the best possible patient centered care.
