Policy Statement: Dissemination of Non-scientific and Misleading COVID-19 Information by Nurses

AONN+ is inclusive of all types of oncology navigators and those who work around them to provide a network for collaboration, leadership, and development of best practices for the improvement of patient access to care, evidence-based cancer treatment, and quality of life. In response to COVID-19 misinformation being spread, we are sharing this policy brief and, although it is aimed at nurses, it can be applicable to all who serve patients. The purpose is to help inform and educate all nurse and patient navigators and the public about the need for healthcare professionals to uphold the highest standards of ethics when it comes to representing their profession.
