Oncology Navigation Standards of Professional Practice

We are pleased to share that the highly anticipated Oncology Navigation Standards of Professional Practice are now available for viewing on the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship!

 

The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+), along with other organizations of the Professional Oncology Navigation Task Force, created these standards to provide clinical oncology nurse navigators, social work navigators, and patient navigators with clear information regarding best practices in the provision of professional care.

AONN+  – Navigation Acuity Tool Quality Initiative

Now Accepting Letters of Intent

The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators’ (AONN+) National Navigation Acuity Team is seeking oncology programs to participate in a new Navigation Acuity Tool quality initiative. Interested programs should submit a letter of intent no later than December 5, 2022.
This quality initiative is the next step in the team’s work to develop a standardized, validated, evidence-based Navigation Acuity Tool for oncology navigation programs. The tool will help address gaps that exist with current acuity tools, both in reliability and validity, while allowing oncology navigators to accurately characterize the complexity of their patients, aid in the allocation of navigation resources, and measure the effectiveness of navigation on patient outcomes. Astellas Pharma US, Inc., is sponsoring this body of work.
