Cancer at the Two Ends of the Life Span

Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer have unique needs that must be addressed to ensure that optimal care is provided as they move through the diagnostic, treatment, and survivorship trajectory. How can you provide care in a culturally-appropriate way for AYAs? How do you deal with the developmental demands of patients who are "too young" to have cancer and who have little to no experience of illness due to their age? At the other end of the spectrum, how can you provide exemplary care to geriatric patients with a number of age-related comorbidities? How can you involve their adult children who have their own age-related illnesses, often including their own cancer diagnoses? Listen as two experts in these diverse populations will educate, challenge, and identify gaps in knowledge and existing evidence.

Please note: Preconference sessions require separate registration.

The Same Only Scarier: Cancer Care and the LGBT Community

Cancer may not discriminate, but the healthcare system often does. LGBT patients with cancer face a unique impact on their identities, sexuality, and families of choice. When they believe they must choose between good medical treatment and social acceptance, many choose to hide their gender identity and sexual orientation from their providers, compromising their quality of care. On the other hand, those who feel safe bringing their whole, authentic selves into care find profound health benefits. Learn how you can address the unique issues of LGBT patients and offer suggestions for improved nursing care.




4:15pm

Dental Oncology

Oral health and dental hygiene are often overlooked before, during, and after cancer treatment. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other drugs used in the treatment of cancer can have compounding effects on the oral mucosa and dentition, resulting in increased risk of infection, delayed wound healing, dental caries, and chronic periodontal disease. Increase your knowledge of dental oncology, an expanding area of dentistry focused on prevention, treatment, and maintenance of oral and dental health in both patients with cancer and survivors, to increase quality of life during and after cancer therapy.

The Cost of Cancer: Beyond Insurance

Despite the increasing number of patients covered by health insurance, the cost of cancer continues to rise. While insurance pays the cost of the treatment, copays and deductibles can amount to more than many people's annual income. On top of that, consider the cost of lost wages, continued rent or mortgage payments, food, gas, and childcare expenses. Join us to discuss the financial challenges that patients face while undergoing cancer treatment, including factors that may influence patients or providers on the value of different treatments.

Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lectureship: The Elephant in the Room: Tackling Tough Topics With Your Patients
Do you often find yourself reluctant to ask a patient a question because you are afraid to offend them or don't know the right words to use? What are the elephants in the room for you as a professional? Do you hesitate before raising the topic of sexuality, end-of-life issues, obesity, or treatment-related infertility? Do you ever wish you had a toolkit that could help you deal with sensitive issues? Get encouraged and inspired to face sensitive topics head on. Using clinical examples, you’ll see how you can confront the elephant in the room and emerge stronger and bolder.

The Mara Mogensen Flaherty Lecture is generously supported by the ONS Foundation.

Vaccination: Prevent, Protect, Immunize

Infection in immunocompromised patients often results in increased morbidity and/or mortality, but prevention and protection can be provided through both active and passive immunization. Although most opportunistic infections are not routinely preventable by vaccines, many other community-based infections are avoidable. Do you know if your patients are adequately protected? Do you know the recommended timing of immunizations? Follow patient case studies through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery to see the vital importance of vaccinations for not only for the patient, but also family, friends, and healthcare workers. Get the knowledge you need to help you prevent, protect, and immunize!
