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.

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.

Using Health Literacy Principles to Improve Patient Education
It’s estimated that more than 90 million Americans have low health literacy, which means they may not be able to understand health information, make informed choices about their care, or navigate the complex healthcare system. It can lead to confusion, compromised patient safety, and costly medical mistakes. The Joint Commission calls upon healthcare providers to provide effective communication for patients and families and integrate health literacy concepts into their practice, but not all providers have the skills or training to do so. Get an introduction to health literacy and related concepts, strategies to improve communication with patients, and instructions on locating appropriate cancer-related patient education resources.

Mentoring Oncology Clinical Nurses to Become Nurse Leaders

As stated in the 2013 HRSA report, The U.S. Nursing Workforce: Trends in Supply and Education, nearly one million nurses—about a third of the current workforce—will reach retirement age over the next 10 to 15 years. Retirement of such a large number of RNs means a significant loss of experiential knowledge and leadership, and a great need to foster nursing leadership skill development among clinical nurses. A mentorship program is one way to develop the next generation of oncology nursing leaders. Explore tools and strategies for implementing a mentorship program for aspiring nurse leaders, and formulate a clear understanding of training activities that teach oncology nursing leadership.

Objectives 

  1. Formulate a clear understanding of training activities that teach nursing leadership.
  2. Provide attendees with opportunity to learn how to start and maintain a mentorship program.
  3. Demonstrate how mentorship programs help retain and boost staff engagement.
