AONN+ Leaders Publish Research on National Platform

Press Releases published on May 4, 2020 in News & Updates

An electronic poster that features the research findings of 3 members of the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is available now on the website of the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) Annual Congress. The study, authored by Amy Jo Pixley, MSN, RN, OCN, ONN-CG(T), Cheryl Bellomo, MSN, RN, OCN, HON-ONN-CG, and Danelle Johnston, MSN, RN, HON-ONN-CG, OCN, was scheduled to be part of the ONS annual live conference in San Antonio in May 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will not be held this year, so presenters were invited to make their research public via the ONS Congress platform.

In 2019, Ms Pixley, Ms Bellomo, and Ms Johnston conducted a series of focus groups comprised of healthcare providers so that they could evaluate the performance and reception of the recently created AONN+ initiative, the Cancer Advocacy & Patient Education (CAPE) program. CAPE is a patient-centered digital education portal designed to provide patients with cancer access to information and support materials appropriate to their disease state and stage.

The findings of their study, “Use of Focus Groups to Explore the Feasibility and Usability of an Oncology Disease-Specific Digital Education Platform,” are available now on the ONS Congress website. The abstract will also be published in a forthcoming issue of Oncology Nursing Forum.
