Dear Navigators,

This month, our Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators will convene in Las Vegas for what promises to be an inspiring and entertaining meeting both in our sessions and out! Every year, I look forward to the profound impact the annual meeting has on our collective empowerment as navigators. The general sessions, keynote speakers, and networking social events provide opportunity for professional growth, connection with your colleagues, and re-energized enthusiasm for our chosen careers.

I hope to see many of you there. For all our membership, I ask that you encourage your colleagues to join the academy to help continue our mission of elevating the importance of providing navigation services to all patients with cancer and to further our progress in overcoming barriers to care.

In this issue of the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship we feature an original research article by Erin O’Hea, PhD, and colleagues about cancer survivorship planning programs, a critical topic in oncology navigation.

In addition to news from the American Society for Radiation Oncology, the Palliative Care in Oncology Symposium, and the European Society for Medical Oncology, we also present the quarterly contribution from our Evidence into Practice Committee. This installment focuses on Psychosocial Support Services, with the Novice Navigator section authored by Morgan Finn, RN; Kimberly Foster, MBA, BSN, RN; Marian E. Gilmore, RN, OCN; Pamela Goetz, BA; and Barbara R. McHale, RN, BS, OCN, CBCN, and the Seasoned Navigator section authored by Cheryl Bellomo, MSN, RN, OCN; Tricia Strusowki, MS, RN; and Nicole Delano, MSN, RN. We are most grateful to this committee of dedicated navigators.

Thank you for your loyal readership and support.

Sincerely,

Lillie Digital Signature
