    Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators
    The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is the largest national specialty organization dedicated to improving patient care and quality of life by defining, enhancing, and promoting the role of oncology nurse and patient navigators. Our organization of over 8,900 members was founded in May 2009 to provide a network for all professionals involved and interested in patient navigation and survivorship care services to better manage the complexities of the cancer care treatment continuum for their patients. We view our organization as one consisting of “professional patient advocates” and, to that end, we support and serve our members.
    Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship
    The Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship (JONS) promotes reliance on evidence-based practices in navigating patients with cancer and their caregivers through diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. JONS also seeks to strengthen the role of nurse and patient navigators in cancer care by serving as a platform for these professionals to disseminate original research findings, exchange best practices, and find support for their growing community.

    The Oncology Nurse-APN/PA (TON) provides coverage of the wide spectrum of oncology-related events, trends, news, therapeutics, diagnostics, organizations, and legislation that directly affect hematology/oncology nurses and advanced practitioners involved in healthcare delivery and product utilization.

Recent Articles Offer Positive Approaches for Patients Facing Cancer

Web Exclusives — December 15, 2022

I wish to thank CONQUER magazine as well as the contributors of 2 articles that were published in the October 2022 issue. I refer to the article by Dawn Coyle, titled “Defined by Cancer, or I Defy My Cancer?” and the article by Heather Barto, titled “How Planning and Organization Helped in My Breast Cancer Journey.”

These articles offer positive approaches that can assist patients (men and women) who are facing a breast cancer diagnosis (and probably other types of cancer). Both authors stressed the importance of organizing your activities, keeping a positive “can do” attitude, and having a strong support group of friends and loved ones in your corner, so you can be successful in your treatment and recovery. Keep up the good fight!
