I am exceedingly proud of the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) for many reasons, but possibly most important, I am proud to feature peer-reviewed, original, evidence-based navigation research. It is rewarding to see proof of the positive impact of navigation in clinical outcomes, patient experience, and, ultimately, the positive return on investment for navigation programs.
The authors present findings from their review of the literature assessing patient navigation efficacy for cancer patients undergoing treatment.
Individuals often have their own personal theories about what may have caused their illness, including cancer. Only a few studies have examined cancer causal attributions in gynecologic cancer survivors.
Nurse navigator Cheryl Bellomo discusses the essential role of navigators in ensuring that quality survivorship care begins at diagnosis and continues throughout the balance of a patient’s life.
The authors present a case addressing the importance of understanding issues facing cancer survivors in order to provide effective patient-centered survivorship care.
In the fall of 2015, I received a phone call from a woman who identified herself as “a friend of someone in trouble.” That was an understatement. Both the trouble and the friendship turned out to be memorable.
In the delivery of survivorship programs, oncology nurses have a duty to the person as whole, not just to their cancer.
Preoperative thoracic surgery education increases patient satisfaction and decreases patient anxiety and readmission rates associated with postoperative complications, all while optimizing overall outcomes for thoracic surgery patients, according to Katherine O. Kuhns, CRNP, a nurse practitioner specialist in thoracic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
Remote monitoring can improve quality of care and patient outcomes in the management of people with cancer, according to Roma Maguire, PhD, MSc, BN, RGN.
