ONA Navigation Summit 2017
Survivorship care plans can ensure that cancer survivors know their cancer and treatment history, and are equipped to maintain proper follow-up care.
Lifestyle changes that promote proper weight management, increased exercise, and a healthy diet have the potential to improve survivors' health and well-being.
An effective nurse navigator approach involves removing barriers to good care, such as differences in health care delivery systems, poor communication, and financial impediments.
Oral therapy brings new challenges to oncology practices, because more responsibility of adherence is placed under patient and caregiver control.
Nurse navigators are charged with finding the method that suits a patient best to ensure adherence to oral cancer therapy regimens and monitor for adverse effects.
Nurse navigators have the education, experience, and skill set to provide patients with effective palliative care, and to provide the family with the support they need.
Lay cancer patient navigators can address barriers to care such as financial burden and psychosocial distress, and can help reduce disparities across the continuum of care.
A patient survey was designed to examine patient views of their initial breast cancer diagnosis process and care management.
By identifying incidence, prevalence, and risk factors for colorectal and pancreatic cancer in our communities, nurse navigators can develop screening and prevention programs to better serve these populations.
Developing a lung cancer screening program involves a number of challenges, including identifying patients in need of screening, patient follow-up, and community support.
Survivorship care plan successfully improves the overall survivorship care of older cancer survivors using lay navigators.
As molecular testing becomes the standard of care for many cancers, nurse navigators have an important role to play ensuring molecular testing of suitable patients, providing patient education, and managing of patient expectations.
Older cancer survivors typically have higher severity of disease and pre-existing conditions, which makes their cancer treatment additionally challenging. The Patient Care Connect Program was created to help address these issues.
