Letters from Lillie

Letter From Lillie

Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, ONN-CG 

Dear Reader,

We are into the final countdown with just a few weeks before our 4th Annual AONN conference! This issue of JONS gives you a preview of the poster presentations that will be on display and presented at the meeting. There are 50 abstracts, each with a specific focus on the navigation or survivorship care process. The categories for abstracts are:

  • Category I: Patient Education
  • Category II: Psychosocial Support
  • Category III: Tracking Processes Across the Continuum of Care
  • Category IV: Original Research
  • Category V: Screening Programs for the Underserved
  • Category VI: Community Outreach

Each abstract is also a candidate for expanding its content and being considered for a future publication of JONS. In the December issue we will have the poster presentation winners by category.

As you read through them, give thought to how you might utilize this type of new knowledge and apply it in your navigation setting. I also hope that it triggers you to consider submitting an abstract of your own at next year’s AONN conference which will take place on September 18-21, 2014, in Orlando, Florida. (Mark your calendars now.) I hope to see you in November in Memphis. We have a great lineup of speakers, very innovative and thought-provoking presentations, networking opportunities for everyone, and there is a good chance that Elvis will be “in the building!” Please make a point of coming over to me and introducing yourself!

With kind regards,

Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS
