Jennifer West, B.S.N., R.N., ONN-CG, a clinical trials navigator at the UF Health Cancer Center, has been named chair of the Clinical Trials Committee of the national Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+).
The mission of the Clinical Trials Committee is to provide education and support to navigators to promote clinical trials to their patients and institutions. West will serve as chair for two years.
“My hope is to bridge the gap between clinical trials and nurse navigators,” she said. “My goal is to give navigators the knowledge and education they need to discuss the option of clinical trials with their patients as they navigate their cancer care journey.”
AONN+ is the largest national specialty organization dedicated to improving patient care and quality of life by defining, enhancing and promoting the role of oncology nurse and patient navigators. The organization has more than 8,900 members nationwide.
Please help us congratulate Jennifer as she takes on this important leadership role!
