Opening Ceremonies/Keynote Address: From the Bedside to the Boardroom—Leading With Purpose
True leadership is not a function of title or position, but the ability to positively influence another human being. Three-time Olympian Devon Harris, a member of the Jamaican bobsled team that inspired the hit movie Cool Runnings, will share how you can inspire your patients and coworkers by building a strong sense of purpose and personal leadership. His profound, moving perspective will teach you that you don’t have to be the best, but you do have to be a good leader and empower others. He’ll also motivate you to understand the ways that each generation learns and leads, and how to adapt your style when others are watching. 

Harris was selected to the first Jamaican bobsled team, which competed in the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada. He was also captain of the Jamaican bobsled team that competed in 1992 Winter Olympic Games in Albertville, France and the 1998 Games in Nagano, Japan. His simple yet powerful delivery—packed with plenty of humor, too—has inspired thousands at Fortune 100 companies, nonprofits, government organizations, schools, and universities.

After his address, Harris will be signing copies of his inspirational books, Keep On Pushing: Hot Lessons from Cool Runnings and Yes, I Can!, at the ONS Foundation booth in Hall A, located near registration. Please bring cash or a check if you would like to purchase these books then. 

OBJECTIVES
1. Discover and develop the leader within.
2. Develop strong communication skills and embrace change to bridge the diversity gap.

Health Information Technology and Ethics in Oncology: Do No Harm
The promise of a fully realized electronic health record—that is, a single, complete, and accurate record of a patient’s health information—puts clinicians in a position to do their best work. But the growing role of health information technology (HIT) comes with challenges. Come explore the ethical issues of privacy, confidentiality, and data usage that are commonplace in the HIT realm.

Speakers will define a truly ethical healthcare environment, which requires thoughtful and deliberate debate. Oncology nurses in this environment must also have the ability to identify and promote ethical behavior independently of punitive and/or legal action. Discussion will focus on the bioethical framework in the context of clinical exemplars, with deliberation on the ethical challenges related to oncology care and HIT. 

Objectives
1. Identify ethical issues related to non-maleficence and the electronic health record.
2. Discuss the meaning of data integrity and fidelity.

Sexuality and Cancer for the Frontline Nurse
Though sexuality is a concern for all oncology patients, care providers don’t routinely ask about it. Often, we’re uncertain of how to deal with sexual problems when they’re raised by patients or their partners. If you’re ready to chip away at your uncertainty, don’t miss this session, which answers three important questions: What are the sexual issues for the most common and some rarer cancers?  What are the causes of these? What can be done for these patients and their partners? With the new assessment techniques and intervention strategies you’ll gain, you’ll be ready to confidently address some of the biggest questions of survivorship and treatment—the ones that shouldn’t be swept under the table.  

Objectives
1. Understand the important of assessing for sexual problems during and after treatment.
2. Describe the sexual side effects of treatment for a variety of cancer types.

ONS Simulation Clinic: Sepsis and Social Media
What are the implications of connecting with your patients on social media? Explore them during this live simulation clinic at the ONS booth.

Your example: Katie is an AYA patient who is going to undergo a bone marrow transplant. During her preparative regimen, Katie sees her RN’s ID and says that she’s going to “friend” her on Facebook. During infusion on day 0, Katie takes a picture with the nurse and posts it to Facebook. On day 3, Katie has a neutropenic fever and needs to be admitted to the ICU. That night, the RN posts something on Facebook about having a bad day because her favorite patient suffered a serious setback. A nursing colleague saw the post and confronted her. What happens next?

Hypersensitivity Infusion Reaction Management: A Time-Sensitive Solution to a Common Problem
When it comes to emergency management of hypersensitivity infusion reactions, many oncology nurses have a general knowledge, but not the ability to apply immediate pharmacologic interventions. Don’t stop at by-the-books knowledge—make sure you’re prepared for the rapid recognition, management, and treatment of these complications. In this session, you’ll cover the pathophysiology and etiology of an infusion reaction, preventive and therapeutic pharmacological management, how to incorporate the CTCEA grading criteria to guide nursing interventions, and how to perform a comprehensive nursing risk assessment. Speakers will walk you through an evidence-based, nurse-driven procedure within a large healthcare system, helping you to visualize the outcomes of time-sensitive assessment and management. 

Objectives
1. Identify pathophysiologic mechanisms responsible for an infusion reaction.
2. Evaluate outcomes of a time-sensitive nurse-driven protocol for hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis to chemotherapy and biotherapy.

Nursing Care for Bone Marrow Transplant Survivors
Bone marrow transplant (BMT) survivors are at significant risk for late complications, including organ toxicity, graft-versus-host disease, infections, secondary cancers, and psychosocial distress. Because community-based nurses frequently provide long-term follow-up care for these patients, it’s essential that they have a solid primer in their needs. 

This session will introduce you to the BMT process, covering assessment, potential late complications, common post-transplant medications, and the survivorship and education needs of this patient population. Case studies will illustrate the 2012 expert care guidelines. You’ll also receive a free education tool that will help you coordinate appropriate, timely patient care.

Objectives
1. Plan appropriate nursing assessments and interventions based on the 2012 published guidelines for follow-up care of transplant recipients.
2. Identify resources for patient education and ongoing nursing education.

The Future of ONS National Conferences
Have you heard the news? Beginning this year, ONS will consolidate the annual Congress and Connections: Advancing Care Through Science conferences into one national meeting. Throughout 2014 and 2015, we’ll evolve the current Congress format to incorporate programs that serve all of our members: novice to expert oncology nurses in general practice, advanced specialties, management, education, and research. In 2016, we will premiere a new national conference that combines the best elements of both conferences and incorporates new-and-improved learning experiences.

Come hear about plans for the future of our national conferences and provide your input on what the new conference experience should be. We’re building a powerful opportunity to bring together ONS members at all career levels and practice settings—but we need your help to meet this exciting challenge.

Preparing for Practice: Educating the New Oncology Advanced Practice Registered Nurse
How can we close the educational gap for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) who are new to oncology? Because most APRN education is broad, there’s a lot that remains to be taught. Come hear some of the most unique solutions to closing the educational gap, and prepare yourself to think outside the box. 

You’ll learn about an online APRN oncology curriculum, a rare program. You'll also explore The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital's new advanced practice oncology fellowship, which is integrated with the ONS post-master’s curriculum. Both are cutting-edge ways to create more formal education and practice experiences, and you’ll dig deep, exploring their program rationale, logistics, and lessons learned. You’ll come away with new tools for implementing a needs assessment in your practice, instilling evidence-based practice, and changing the way you educate APRNs.  

Objectives
 
1. Evaluate two different methods of educating oncology APRNs to determine an appropriate plan of action for creating an education program.  
2. Decide on the appropriate timing of when to initiate oncology-specific education and utilize established resources to make this education successful.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Brain and Spine Tumors: What the Oncology and Neurosurgery Nurse Needs to Know
The medical literature is full of articles on stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), a non-invasive, ambulatory procedure for brain and spine tumors not suited for surgical resection. But have nurses been adequately prepared to care for patients receiving cranial SRS? Come learn how you can contribute to the goals of SRS—those like arresting tumor growth and decreasing pain from spine lesions—and recognize adverse events such as potential motor or sensory decline. You’ll also learn to identify the benefits of SRS for patients with cancer, including tumor control and/or effective pain relief.

Objectives
1. Identify the benefits of SRS to the oncology patient.
2. Empower the nurse with knowledge about SRS to enhance patient education efforts.

The Pivotal Role of the Oncology Nurse in Breakthrough Cancer Pain: Patient Advocacy, Assessment, and Management
We’ve all heard about breakthrough cancer pain (BTCP): those uncontrolled and intense flares of pain with a sudden onset which can be debilitating for patients and a challenge to treat. Yet despite its high prevalence and significant impact on patients, pain assessments continue to be inconsistent in accurately recognizing BTCP. Improving diagnosis of BTCP may result in more optimal pain management.

At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to

  • Define characteristics of BTCP· 
  • Understand the impact of BTCP on the patient with cancer.
  • Implement better techniques to assess BTCP using tools and communication methods
  • Advocate for patients with BTCP.

Nursing Perspective for Optimizing Care in Advanced Prostate Cancer: Clinical Application of Evolving Treatment Strategies

Oncology nurses play an important role in the treatment of patients with advanced prostate cancer. Since nurses often act as advocates on behalf of the patient, it is increasingly important that they are knowledgeable in both the basics of standards of care as well as any new data/therapies that could help to improve patient outcomes.

This interactive breakfast symposium will provide oncology nurses with the most up-to-date information on evidence-based therapeutic trends that explore the assessment, treatment, and management of patients with advanced prostate cancer.

Case-based presentations will explore the latest treatment options available, as well as how to best manage the associated side effects in order to optimize patient adherence and overall outcomes. REGISTER HERE.

Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lecture: My 'Glass Half-Full' Keeps Spilling
While many oncology nurses help their patients mark the end of treatment with celebration, few will follow these same survivors indefinitely. Cancer survivors can now live years, and even decades, after their initial treatments are completed. Yet continued interaction with their oncology nursing caregivers diminishes with time, and the risks and realities of survival are usually an unknown entity. Join Susan Leigh, BSN, RN, an oncology nurse and repeat cancer survivor, to hear the stories and challenges of long-term survivors. She'll invite all nurses to offer the “gift of preparation” as treatments end.

The Mara Mogensen Flaherty Lecture is generously supported by the ONS Foundation. 

OBJECTIVES
1. Describe ways to prepare patients for the realities of survival in both oncology and non-oncology settings.
2. List two new subspecialties that are helping to improve the quality of life of long-term survivors.
3. Identify the need for and components of survivorship care planning.

Foundational Tools for Oncology Nurse Navigator Programs: Review of the Oncology Nurse Navigator Competency Project
Many oncology nurses have taken up nurse navigator roles which are second to their education and disease-specific training. They face big challenges: notably, a dearth of evidence-based resources or the professional standards that help them to develop effective programs. Laying the groundwork for greater support of nurse navigators, ONS launched the oncology nurse navigator (ONN) project in fall 2012. Come learn about the project’s development, including its role definition of an oncology nurse navigator, the creation of core competencies, and how these competencies are taking root across medical institutions.

Building Nursing Knowledge Through Case Studies: Clinical Trials, Genomics, and Prognosis
Clinical trials are important in the advancement of treatment options for patients with blood cancers. Oncology nurses are key players in clinical trials, including identifying, implementing, educating, treating, monitoring and navigating patients throughout their cancer experience. Personalized nurse-patient communication can contribute to patient enrollment and promote optimal outcomes related to their treatment. 

Through discussion of case studies, this symposium will provide an opportunity for nurses to expand their knowledge about how clinical trials and genomics influence treatment and prognosis for patients with blood cancer. The significant role of patient-nurse communication related to testing, treatment, and other challenges, such as prognosis, ethical issues, diversity and clinical trials will be discussed. This symposium will include interactive discussion among participants and with the panel to build knowledge among nurses and for nurses to use this knowledge to impact and improve patient care. Register here.

Bench to Bedside Lecture
Are you up-to-date on the newest treatments for patients with advanced melanoma, the deadliest of skin cancers? Antoni Ribas and Grace Cherry will share promising medical breakthroughs in melanoma research, uncovering its biology, what makes it grow, and how it interacts with the immune system. You’ll hear about new therapies that are based on blocking the oncogene BRAF with novel BRAF and MEK inhibitors, and that unleash an antitumor immune response by blocking negative immune regulators like CTLA4 and PD-1. Learn how these novel agents differ from standard chemotherapy treatments in their mechanisms of action, toxicity profiles, and side effects, and what the nursing implications are.

Are Survivorship Care Plans Meeting Survivors' Needs?
Recognition of the need for well thought-out survivorship care plans is growing. In 2005, the Institute of Medicine reported on the lack of coordination of care when patients transitioned to primary care; in 2012, the Commission on Cancer added the provision of a survivorship care plan to cancer program standards. How successful have these plans been?

During this session, you’ll hear perspectives from oncology and primary care providers as well as cancer survivors. You’ll watch videos of live interviews that compare and contrast the community and academic experience. After an interactive discussion on best practices and survivorship care experiences, you’ll come away with ideas to extend the care you provide. 

Objectives
1. Critically appraise the current status of survivorship care plan initiatives in community and academic settings.
2. Generate potential strategies to enhance effectiveness of survivorship care plans to meet survivors’ needs.

Implementing Evidence-Based Practice Across International Healthcare Settings: One Size Does Not Fit All
From low-income to high-income economies, the challenge of effectively adapting evidence-based practice (EBP) recommendations exists for every healthcare practitioner. These challenges take place in diverse settings: rural, urban, and high- or low-resource. In addition, variation in nursing education and responsibilities, access to care, time and commitment from leadership, and divergent attitudes toward healthcare practices exist in almost every country around the world.  

Come listen to the fascinating perspectives of leaders from ONS, the International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC), the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), and the Canadian Association of Nurses in Oncology (CANO/ACIO) about these challenges. U.S. and non-U.S. nurses alike will learn relevant nursing strategies for applying EBP recommendations when access to care and other cultural or logistical barriers are present. You'll have the opportunity to pose your own questions and success strategies for translating EBP to the needs and nuances of your healthcare system. 


OBJECTIVES

1. Explore the challenges and priorities of adapting evidence-based recommendations to one’s own practice setting, cultural ecosystem, and patient population.
2. Discuss strategies to mitigate barriers and support the implementation of evidence-based cancer care in international healthcare settings.  
3. Examine capacity-building and partnerships as a means to sustain practice changes.

Coordinated Care or Everyone for Themselves? Navigating the Complicated Health Policy Environment for Patients and Providers
Today’s health policy issues are driving a traditionally structured environment to its ultimate brink, with nurses holding up the foundation. Amidst concerns like the nationally recognized nursing shortage, oncology nurses must contend with the changing provision of health care itself under the Affordable Care Act. Although coordinated care is a staple of the health professional environment, putting it into practice has been more difficult than anticipated, especially for the role of nursing. Join ONS Health Policy Director Alec Stone for a discussion on the state of coordinated care, the role of nursing in that care, and the future for patients, providers, and the American people. 

OBJECTIVES 
1. Describe the state of coordinated care in the provision of healthcare.
2. Describe how current legislative, regulatory, and research issues may impact ONS members.  
3. Discuss advocacy tools that can be used for more effective outreach to policy leaders and decisionmakers on the importance of oncology nursing to health care.
