APN-Led Programs in Rural Areas

Not all patients with cancer are treated in large academic centers. How can we ensure they receive the highest level of care in rural areas? What is the role for APNs in smaller centers, and how can we maximize our education and expertise to provide innovative and safe care to patients and their families? You’ll discuss the effectiveness and acceptability of telehealth and gain a better understanding of APN-led programs and initiatives that have improved access to care and quality of life for those who are treated far from metropolitan centers.

Health Disparities and Cancer Navigation: Impact, Utility, and Implications Globally

In the past few years, health disparities, navigation, and person-centered care have taken center stage in the cancer care arena. Cancer care around the globe is changing at a rapid pace, yet to date these topics have only been addressed from a U.S. perspective. Join us as a panel of global experts from international cancer nursing societies approach health disparities, navigation, and person-centered care from an international viewpoint. You'll see the impact and implications of health disparities and gain an understanding of the utility of cancer navigation internationally.

Sponsored by the ONS Board of Directors 

Objectives

  1. Discuss the facilitators and barriers related to addressing health disparities from a global perspective.
  2. Describe models of cancer navigation that promote person-centered care and improve outcomes from a global perspective.
  3. Provide exemplars of person-centered care globally.

Complex Pain Management in Oncology

Patients with cancer often face acute pain in addition to chronic pain. On top of multiple types of pain, they may experience spiritual or existential suffering. Poor management of pain is not uncommon, with both provider and patient/family factors contributing to the situation. The holistic approach of APRNs has significant potential to ease suffering and provide evidence-based care for these patients. In this case study-based session, you’ll receive an overview of how to perform a complete pain assessment and discuss both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical strategies to provide palliative pain management.
