It’s a busy time in the world of oncology. The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) held its 38th Annual Congress in May while the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) took place this month. The Oncology Nurse-APN/PA (TON) was at both events. This issue presents our coverage of the news from the ONS. The next several issues of TON will cover the news from ASCO.

We talked to several nurse presenters at ONS and have articles that address issues ranging from malglycemia (high blood glucose level in nondiabetic patients) to how incorporating caregivers into a patient’s exercise plan improves the patient’s physical activity and quality of life. These are concerns that oncology nurses can incorporate into their daily practice.

Also, we cover the issue of treatment summaries and survivorship care plans. These plans will be mandatory by the end of 2015, and oncology nurses will undoubtedly play an important role in their effective implementation. The topic of survivorship planning is the subject of our new reader poll (see page 15). Please go to
www.TheOncologyNurse.com to participate in the poll and tell us how you discuss this topic with your patients.

While visiting the website, be sure to let us know what you think about TON and the website—good and bad! Please email us at editorial@greenhillhc.com.
