LIVESTRONG Partners with ONA to Promote Oncology Nurse Navigation

NEW YORK, April 24, 2017— LIVESTRONG has partnered with Haymarket Media's Oncology Nurse Advisor (ONA) in support of the annual ONA Navigation Summit, an interactive educational symposium designed to improve the knowledge and competence of clinicians who provide support for oncology patients across the continuum of care. Up to 12 continuing nursing education (CNE) credits are offered during 3 days of sessions, and participants will have the opportunity to network with peers and speakers who represent the nation's top cancer centers and are experts in clinical and practice issues relevant to oncology navigation. Attendees at this meeting will include care coordinators, oncology nurses, nurse navigators, advanced practice nurses, cancer program administrators, and cancer service line directors involved in the management of people with cancer.

The LIVESTRONG Foundation, a pioneer in survivorship, strives to improve the lives of people affected by cancer; it provides direct services to cancer patients and survivors, builds partnerships that create access to cancer programs around the country, and advocates for policies that enhance survivors' quality of life. Additionally, it offers healthcare professionals access to educational trainings designed to enhance and improve knowledge and skills for delivering patient-centered care to people with cancer. LIVESTRONG, as demonstrated through its various training programs for clinicians, recognizes the importance and need for ongoing education for oncology nurse navigators and supports the ONA Navigation Summit in its goal to provide high-quality oncology navigation education to these individuals who treat patients with cancer.

ONA is privileged to partner with this influential and forward-thinking organization as it facilitates expanding the reach of education to improve oncology practice and ultimately patient care. In a joint effort to share expert information, the new affiliation between ONA and the LIVESTRONG Foundation seeks to put the cancer patient and survivor first. This year's ONA Navigation Summit will take place June 15-17, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, Texas.
