Multi-Tumor Type Navigation

Shanna Gillming, RN 

The goal of our breakout session was to have an open discussion regarding concerns with multi-tumor site navigation, identify potential best practices, and review some case studies highlighting the strengths and difficulties of multi-tumor site navigation. We wanted to have an open discussion with each navigator involved.

Take-Home Messages

  • Multi-tumor site navigation does have its own benefits, and multi-tumor site navigation is the ideal situation for certain institutions

  • Multi-tumor site navigation also has some downsides

  • It is helpful to network with other multitumor site navigators to share resources

  • We would like to explore the idea of a community within AONN for multi-tumor site navigators to network
