With this issue of The Oncology Nurse-APN/PA (TON), we continue our coverage of the news from the 54th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) and the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS). The news from ASH includes some of the latest research involving treatments for lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia. Our SABCS coverage tells you about the results of a study suggesting that musculoskeletal toxicity associated with aromatase inhibitor therapy can lead to medication noncompliance in up to one-third of women with breast cancer.

March is national kidney cancer awareness month. To acknowledge this, Noteworthy Numbers focuses on the statistics of this disease, which is the 6th most common cancer among men and the 8th most common cancer among women in the United States. Our Cancer Center Profile this month is an interview with Jeremy Heinerich, PA-C. Jeremy tells us how physician assistants were incorporated into the oncology department at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he is now Chief PA of Inpatient Oncology.

As always, I encourage you to visit our website, www.TheOncologyNurse.com. Please answer this month’s Reader Poll about what patients tell you about how well they adhere to their at-home medication regimens and let us know how you help them. Be sure to tell us what topics you want to see covered in TON. We want to hear from you, and we appreciate your feedback.
