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.
We Need a Financial Navigator! - You don’t have a formal Financial Navigator at your facility - putting all the puzzle pieces together, so your patients can reap the benefits of Financial Navigation.
Take Your Financial Navigation to the Next Level - Proactive rather than Reactive means reaching out to the patients before they realize they might need help!
In this session, seasoned and rising leaders will explore varying aspects of exercising leadership. Participants will also learn how to work with others in a leadership context. They will discover skills to build teams, coach individuals, and meet group and individual challenges that arise in a leadership role. Participants will develop personal insight and perspective on their leadership style to fit their work and team environments. The session will review contemporary issues in the healthcare and oncology landscapes and examine how this impacts leadership. Participants will also learn methodologies to collaborate, communicate, and interact with professional leaders.Learning Objectives:

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.
Telehealth as an evolving innovative platform in oncology navigation is accelerating in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this session, participants will learn about the current and future landscape of telehealth in healthcare and explore opportunities for application in oncology navigation.Learning Objectives:
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:
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.
This session will provide an overview of | FLMA, Cobra & Health Insurance. It will discuss various scenarios that AONN+ members face when working with patients and families about the health insurance issues. It will provide national resources focused on employment protection, disability rights or workplace accommodations. This session will help in understanding the employment issues that our patients are facing and how we can advocate for our patients regarding these issues.Learning Objectives:
