The National Navigation Acuity Team – a collaborative initiative between AONN+ and Astellas – is developing an acuity tool to optimize patient care.
The National Acuity Initiative presents their findings from a scoping review of the literature. These results informed the creation of case studies on which the acuity tool will be tested and validated.
One of the top questions posed to members of the leadership team at the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is: “What is the caseload that oncology navigators should be carrying?” According to Danelle Johnston, MSN, RN, HON-ONN-CG, OCN, when the leadership team ultimately realized they did not have a good answer to that question, they identified the need for a navigation acuity tool.

This highly anticipated navigation acuity tool will aid navigators in identifying levels of patient acuity based on the barriers to care, weights of the barriers, and level of patient distress.
