AONN+ Evidence-Based Navigation Metrics

The creation of the standardized national metrics to measure programmatic success is vital to coordinating high-quality, team-based care and demonstrating the sustainability of navigation programs. It is imperative that oncology nurse and patient navigators understand that active participation in data collection, analytics, and reporting outcomes are not added responsibilities but are already a part of the professional role. The implications for navigation practices using quality navigation measures are that they are transformative, evaluate professional practice and care delivery, define oncology navigation practice and outcomes, and are necessary for sustainability of navigation.

AONN+ 2020 Navigation Metrics Toolkit (PDF)
(August 2020)

AONN+ has identified 35 evidence-based navigation metrics that are relevant to cancer care, and demonstrate the value and sustainability of oncology navigation. This toolkit was developed to help navigators, oncology program administrators’ healthcare executives, and other clinicians who are linked to navigation understand and support the integration of these standardized metrics into their normal business process. The toolkit will provide guidance on how to select, implement, report, and utilize them as they engage in quality/performance improvement and strategic decision-making.
