APHON Wants You: Become an Advocate in 2021! (209)

APHON’s mission is to support and advance nurses in the effort to optimize outcomes for children, adolescents, and young adults with blood disorders and cancer and their families. The APHON 2021–2024 Strategic Plan has identified advocacy for the expertise, research, and resources needed to advance the profession and provide care for our patients as one of four pillars vital to fulfilling this mission.

Nurses are incredibly effective advocates because they are trusted by patients and the public. As an APHON advocate, you will be part of a network of members who are knowledgeable, ready to communicate with policymakers, and equipped to cultivate relationships with legislative stakeholders, and who will help establish APHON as the leading voice for expertise in pediatric hematology/oncology nursing. APHON's Advocacy Committee works to ensure pediatric hematology/oncology nurses are kept apprised of relevant legislative and regulatory issues while providing strategies for APHON nurses to participate in advocacy opportunities. This session will engage members and give them the opportunity to learn from and interact with current APHON advocates and the Advocacy Committee. Attendees will be given the knowledge, insight, and inspiration to take the next step in leveraging their skills to bring about enduring changes that will improve outcomes for patients and their families.

CNE Presentation

Recognition Session for Certified Oncology Nurses: The Secret Sauce . . . Thriving in Times of Change (RB)

A great deal has changed since Covid 19 arrived on the scene. In addition to the health threat, virtually every aspect of daily life and routine has also been disrupted. As if our pre-Covid challenges were not enough! So how can we be at our best, even in the face of all the change and uncertainty? Well, one thing we do know for certain:

Now — more than ever — we need a reason to Laugh!


Meg’s presentation will celebrate the accomplishments of Oncology Nurses and related specialties after a year when they were called upon to adapt in an environment where no one knew what to expect next! Using experiences from her career as an Operating Room nurse, she will share ideas about how we can harness our mental energy to bolster our resilience and strengthen relationships with those around us so we can be at our best even when pushed to our limits – all delivered with her trademark humor.

This presentation will entertain, inspire, and provide those attending with tools they can use to bolster their resilience, self-awareness, and interpersonal relationships.

 

*Please note that while this optional event is included in the conference fee, selecting the event on the registration form is required to attend. Space is limited to the first 300 certified hematology/oncology/BMT nurses who register.
