AONN+ Releases Evidence-Based Navigation Metrics

8/18/2020, AONN+

The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) is pleased to announce the release of the 2020 Navigation Metrics Toolkit. This new resource will be an invaluable aid to navigators, oncology program administrators, healthcare executives, and other clinicians who are linked to navigation in creating transformative patient care and defining oncology navigation professional practice.

Over the past 3 years, a dedicated task force comprised of AONN+ leadership and members, in collaboration with the American Cancer Society and Chartis Oncology Solutions, has been involved in the extensive project of researching and designing the AONN+ Evidence-Based Navigation Metrics, a national standardized tool to measure the elements crucial to coordinating high-quality team-based care, and to demonstrating the success and sustainability of navigation programs.

The result of those efforts is the Navigation Metrics Toolkit now available to our members.

The toolkit has been created to:

  • Help navigators, executives, and administrators understand and support standardized metrics in their everyday processes
  • Reflect current AONN+ recommendations and best practices
  • Provide guidance on how to select, implement, report, and utilize navigation metrics
  • Ease the path for navigators to start new programs and provide momentum for existing programs
