Haymarket Oncology and the Oncology Nursing Society Join Forces on the 2017 ONA Navigation Summit
NEW YORK, September 1, 2016—Haymarket Media Inc. and Haymarket Oncology, publishers of Oncology Nurse Advisor (ONA), and the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) have joined forces to conduct the 3rd annual ONA Navigation Summit, to be held in June 2017.
The ONA Navigation Summit will bring together leading experts from across the cancer care community to share first-hand experiences and knowledge regarding issues that affect oncology nurse navigators and care coordinators.
Summit participants include patient navigators, nurse navigators, oncology nurse navigators, patient advocates, care coordinators, and other health care professionals interested in oncology navigation. The Summit sessions and exhibit hall will provide the opportunity to connect one-on-one with oncology health care professionals from across the United States.
Chad Holloway, Group Publisher at Haymarket Oncology, stated, “ONA is extremely excited and pleased to be collaborating with the ONS, the leading professional organization for oncology nurses and advanced practitioners, on the 2017 Navigation Summit. The collaborative effort on the 3rd annual Navigation Summit will offer attendees a unique learning experience and will provide sponsors and exhibitors the opportunity to deliver educational messaging within a context of credibility, all with the ultimate goal of advancing the role of oncology nurse navigation and care coordination.”
“Nurse navigation is one critical way in which care coordination is being delivered for patients with cancer," said Brenda Nevidjon, MSN, RN, FAAN, ONS chief executive officer. “Nurse navigators work directly with patients and caregivers to provide education and resources for more informed decision-making, and facilitate access to quality health and psychosocial care throughout the cancer continuum. A partnership such as this allows ONS and Haymarket to offer the most current information for effective navigation, as well as educational and networking opportunities, not only to our members, but anyone working in the capacity as an oncology nurse navigator.”
ONS is a professional association of more than 39,000 members committed to advancing excellence in oncology nursing and the transformation of cancer care. Since 1975, ONS has provided a professional community for oncology nurses, developed evidence-based education programs and treatment information, and advocated for patient care—all in an effort to improve quality of life and outcomes for patients with cancer and their families.
