AONN+’s Annual Conference is a much-anticipated event among oncology navigators, social workers, physicians, and administrators. Each year, almost 1,500 attendees are drawn to the event by the opportunity to gain valuable insights and knowledge not found elsewhere. AONN+’s Annual Conference not only addresses tactics to implement and measure successful navigation programs, but also showcases certified content eligible for approximately 17 CEUs.
“While we would have loved to provide our members with an in-person experience this year, we felt that a virtual event offers a safer, more accessible alternative for our community,” explains AONN+’s Program Director Sharon Gentry, MSN, RN, HON-ONN-CG, AOCN, CBCN. “We’ve been working hard over the past several months to perfect the online experience for our members and are confident we can provide an event that is not only educational but engaging and fun.”
