AONN+ Statement About COVID-19

March 13, 2020 | Press Releases | COVID-19, News & Updates

AONN+ Position COVID-19

In light of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is aware of the increased acuity of patient care that navigators are managing on a daily basis with patients with cancer and their families. In response, we aim to support our professional members with credible resources/information they can use to educate and empower those around them as well as alleviate fears. The navigator’s primary responsibility to the patient is to follow the mandatory guidelines set by their federal, state, and/or healthcare institution.

Patient Empowerment

Patient empowerment is a key competency skill for all navigators and is reflected in AONN+ knowledge domains as well as the National Navigation Roundtable competency domains. As discussions are held with patients with cancer, their families, and other community members, it is critical to apply insight and understanding about emotions, and human responses to emotions, to create and maintain positive interpersonal interactions. Please demonstrate interpersonal and communication skills that result in the effective exchange of information and collaboration across the broad range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds encountered daily.

A Message From AONN+ Program Director Sharon Gentry
