Sessions

Preconference Workshop | Genetics & Genomics BRIDGE

Nov 4, 2020 12:00pm ‐ Nov 4, 2020 4:00pm

Identification: WED01

Oncology nurse/patient navigators who participate in this BRIDGE Symposium will develop a working knowledge of cancer genetics/genomics. Navigators can then effectively educate patients and advocate for appropriate referrals to genetic professionals, ensuring suitable access to germline and tissue testing.

The role of Navigators as Genetic Extenders will be proposed, ultimately to enhance cancer care for patients and their families. The current state of the science and near future directions in cancer genetics/genomics will be addressed by a multidisciplinary faculty that includes genetics nurses, advanced practice nurses, certified genetic counselors, and researchers.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe basic concepts and principles in cancer genetics and genomics, specific to the navigator role.
  • Recognize the shared decision- making process related to genetic/genomic testing, focusing on both pretest and posttest education and counseling.
  • Identify at least 2 of the most common hereditary cancer syndromes, as well as proposed management guidelines.
  • Describe at least 2 emerging technologies in tissue genetic testing (genomics) that are now or may soon affect cancer treatment or management.
  • Distinguish basic clinical features that warrant referral for genetic/genomic testing, using case examples and pedigree reviews.
  • Propose the role of Genetic Extender for Navigators particularly around gathering a relevant family history, fostering a multidisciplinary team, and evaluating educational resources.

This session is offered jointly by AONN+ and the Patient Navigator Training Collaborative (www.patientnavigatortraining.org). Help your clients reach their behavior change goals! Motivational interviewing (MI) is a patient-centered communication technique used to help people facing ambivalence and support those ready to make a change in health behavior. In this interactive workshop, you will learn basic MI techniques you can use with patients to help support behavior change: open-ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening and summarizing. No previous MI experience required. Workshop activities include virtual role play, guided discussion and application to practice.
This workshop will feature lecture, videos, small group work and facilitated discussion. The workshop will feature cancer-specific scenarios to tie the concepts to the participants’ daily practice. Participants will learn about the collaborative spirit of MI, describe basic strategies to enhance patient readiness to change and practice the use of basic MI skills.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe motivational interviewing (MI).
  • Identify the four key MI skills.
  • Understand basic strategies that will enhance patient readiness to change.
  • Demonstrate use of basic MI skills

General Session 2 | Equipping Navigation Teams for Metrics Implementation

Nov 5, 2020 10:15am ‐ Nov 5, 2020 11:30am

Identification: THURS03

Because evidence guides practice, it is essential for oncology navigation programs to identify core metrics and standardize data collection activities to demonstrate program outcomes in the value-based environment that is currently dominant and will continue to be in the future. However, the oncology navigation field has lacked clarity about which metrics are most relevant and has failed to provide oncology navigators with a common framework for navigation measurement. This session will introduce the metrics implementation toolkit and guide navigation teams in the utilization of this resource.

Learning Objectives:
  • Summarize the background to the development of the metrics implementation toolkit.
  • Discuss the common challenges and facilitators to collecting metrics.
  • Identify key stakeholders to determine program metrics and data sources.
  • Illustrate navigation metrics dashboard development.
  • Describe the performance improvement process and tools.

General Session 3 | Beyond Efficacy, Toxicity, and Cost: Patients Define Cancer Care Value in the United States

Nov 5, 2020 11:30am ‐ Nov 5, 2020 12:45pm

Identification: THURS04

This session will address the heightened focus on the concept of cancer care “value” via patient perspectives and perceptions through existing assessments of patient preferences, values, and goals.

This qualitative study explores and examines real-life (patient) experiences as they have become actualized in peoples’ lives, and the study findings will be utilized to inform the future of value assessments and ultimately policies that impact the lives of patients and their families.

Learning Objectives:
  • Provide an overview of the concept of value assessment and the potential impact on cancer patients.
  • Explore factors cancer patients and survivors consider when defining value in cancer care.
  • Share the degree of alignment or conflict between the factors that patients and survivors deem critical to cancer care value and those factors of importance to value framework developers.
  • Discuss implications for practice, research, and policy.
