Cancer Genomics: How to Talk the Talk and Walk the Walk as Oncology Nurses

Oncology nurses play an essential role in supporting people with cancer when they receive complex genomic information that is used to inform their treatment plan. The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) wants to assure that the current and next generation of oncology nurses know the science, can apply the latest evidence in practice, and translate genomics information to patients and families. ONS offers a genomics taxonomy, a multitude of educational offerings, and point-of-care tools to support oncology nursing practice. Learn about these resources and how to integrate them into your practice by attending this learning activity.
