Dear Reader,

I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer! We are now even closer to our 4th Annual AONN Conference in Memphis. I am hoping to see you there. We have a great lineup of experts to empower you with new knowledge and practical tools to make your navigation role better than ever—for you and for your patients!

This issue of JONS contains great information for you! There is a very comprehensive article, submitted by Danelle Johnston, on the current state of care transitions and cancer survivorship. A topic important to all of us! You will also find an article dedicated to the subject of “adherence,” including a commentary. (Sometimes getting patients to do the right thing for themselves simply doesn’t happen and is riddled with barriers as to the causes for why it occurs.)

I want everyone to get to know our Quality, Outcomes, and Performance Improvement (QOPI) Committee, so you will find in each issue of JONS information written by one of our QOPI members. This issue contains information about Elaine Sein, Senior Project Manager at Fox Chase Cancer Center Partners.

In keeping with previous issues, I am providing the next installment of resources that are available to us from pharmaceutical companies that you likely are not familiar with and can benefit you and your patients.

Be well, enjoy the approach of autumn, and start looking forward to us being together in November in Memphis!

With kind regards,

Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS
