Life After Cancer: How Oncology Nurse Navigators Can Support, Educate Survivors

Oncology nurse navigators (ONNs) are in a “prime position” to provide survivors of cancer with the necessary education to promote participation in survivorship programs, according to a recent study.

A team of researchers from Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute presented results from the study at the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators 14th Annual Navigation & Survivorship Conference. They conducted the study to evaluate how ONN-led survivorship patient education and referrals affect the attendance rate of initial survivorship care planning visits following completion of curative treatment.
