Members Memo

Did you know that as little as a 6% weight loss predicts a reduced response to oncology treatment, reduced survival, and quality of life?
In 2017, AONN+ recognized the effort and work of the local navigation networks (LNNs) by offering them opportunities to provide the ONN-CG, OPN-CG, or beta thoracic certification exams in their area.
Recently, all the LNN leaders were notified of some updates and AONN+ would like to share them with the general membership.
Great job by the Upstate NY LNN as they are increasing their navigator and social worker membership after each gathering!
Nurse navigator Molly Sutton leads over 50 navigators in the North Texas LNN. This LNN meets quarterly to increase knowledge and network.
I want to welcome Carolyn Allsen RN, BSN, OCN, ONN-CG as the new Houston Area LNN president who presides over an active group of navigation professionals. This group meets monthly, and they have a group of 35 members that share community resources and present topics on local pearls of wisdom.
The Central Texas Oncology Navigator Network (CTON2) has consistently held quarterly meetings over the past year with an average attendance of 17 dedicated navigators. They use medical representative–sponsored meetings on a variety of navigation topics.

The Greater Kansas City Local Navigator Network (LNN) is breaking new ground this month, as they will be the first LNN to host a test site for AONN+ certification! They will have a local meeting the night before the testing, with a speaker presenting, “Is it Okay to Laugh? Benefits of Humor.” What a creative idea to help members relax prior to taking a test!

Thank you to each member who participated in the regional meeting in Phoenix this spring. My favorite part of each conference is watching the interaction among the members. The term “navigation sponges” came to mind during the open microphone question sessions.

Congratulations to Jo Weathers and her team in South Carolina for continuing to have a successful navigation support outreach in their area! They held 8 chapter local navigator network (LNN) meetings in 2016 and have grown from an initial gathering of 8 attendees to as many as 26 this year.
