CRANBURY, NJ, Oct. 4, 2021 - The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) collaborates with professional organizations and industry partners to explore effective practices for addressing the care variation in pharmacy dispensing across delivery systems.
Pfizer is the project supporter of this collaboration, which also involves the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) and the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association, Inc.
The focus of this collaborative project is to explore and ensure effective practices for addressing the care variation in pharmacy dispensing across delivery systems. The outcome will be relevant resources for everyone’s membership related to oncology pharmacy.
This collaboration supports the mission of AONN+ to advance the role of patient navigation in cancer care across the care continuum by providing a network for collaboration, leadership, and development of best practices for the improvement of patient access to care, evidence-based cancer treatment, and quality of life.
AONN+ member Clara Lambert agrees to be our representative on the Variations in Care Advisory Committee. Clara was the 2019 AONN+ Putting Evidence into Practice award winner; she is involved in many AONN+ committees and speaks to navigators about financial navigation.
With the guidance of its Advisory Committee and Partner Organizations, ACCC has developed a curated resource library that incorporates publications, tools, and other assets that can help care team members navigate the complex issue of coordinating care when dispensing oral oncolytics.
