Member's Memo

Distress screening is a common topic among navigators and financial distress is a common theme. Each program has resources to manage this stress for patients, but it usually helps with transportation, medication, or medical equipment costs.
Have you looked over the AONN+ conference agenda? There is lots of information with a variety of topics and many opportunities to network among peers.
It was a delight to visit the North Texas AONN+ chapter in May to see how well they are doing and to rejuvenate with the excitement of peer to peer support. If the enthusiasm and energy from the conversations throughout the room could be bottled, fatigue would be cured!
Do you ever feel that the world of oncology care is changing so fast that you cannot keep abreast of the latest in your area of care?
For those of you who missed the annual conference last year, you can hear the presentations that were part of the Fifth AONN Annual Conference. We recognize that it is difficult to get travel time or funding to go to conference so part of your membership is access to past conference presentations.
May is a month of traditional celebrations such as Mothers Day and Nurses Day. So “Happy Mothers Day” to all traditional mothers – the female parents and the same to all that “mother” individuals in the sense of exercising control, influence, or authority like that of a mother.
Patient navigation programs have evolved over the past 2 decades as oncology care has become a complex network of prevention, early detection, genomic and proteomic treatment pathways, and survivorship promotion.
As Spring teases us with warmer weather, the intention to move more is a little easier after a long day at work! Navigators have shown they are interested in keeping their patient on the move. The abstracts from 2014 reflect this theme.
Studies have shown that nonclinically licensed oncology patient navigators play a huge role in eliminating health disparities.
In the last e-newsletter, you met Mandi Pratt-Chapman who oversees a nationally recognized training center leading the development of navigation and survivorship programs at the George Washington University Cancer Institute.
