With more therapies available than ever before and greater patient involvement in treatment decisions, oncology nurse navigators face the perennial challenge of providing high-quality patient and caregiver education in reader-friendly language.

Enter CONQUER: the patient voice. Published by The Lynx Group as the official publication of The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+), this patient-facing magazine was launched in February 2015 to fill an unmet need for AONN+’s oncology nurse navigators.

I am often asked what navigation training certification is best for facilities to have their nurses attend so they can be certified as nurse navigators. My reply leads in with an explanation that there are no set required competencies or standards for nurse navigator training, and there is no certification to declare a “certified nurse navigator.”
Literacy experts agree that children need to read during the summer to maintain reading skills, improve reading confidence, and learn new words and concepts. Healthcare professionals that embrace lifelong learning use a 12-month reading program not just in the summer to apply the same principles to their education.
As summer approaches with plans for vacations, long weekends or quieter evenings, it is interesting to see and hear what colleagues have on their “to read” list.
How many evenings do you read articles or news related to work? It is a hazard of the job unless there is time built in at work….I know….I was just dreaming! In reality, reading about your specialty or oncology advances is a professional commitment to stay abreast of the latest for your patients. It is amazing what has transpired over the past 10 years in oncology—just look at all the news on multiple myeloma and melanoma.
