Wednesday, January 25, 2012
The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) is pleased to announce Anne Katz, RN, PhD, as the new editor of the Oncology Nursing Forum (ONF), the Society’s flagship journal. Katz will begin her new responsibility on March 1.
“I am so happy to be taking on this role with ONS,” said Katz. “I want to take the high regard with which ONF is held among oncology nurses and researchers and move it even higher. There is such a thirst for nursing evidence to guide our collective practice, and I want ONF to be the number one place where nurses, and our allied health colleagues, get that information.”
Katz is a clinical nurse specialist at the Manitoba Prostate Centre, an adjunct professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Manitoba, and a sexuality counselor for the Department of Psychosocial Oncology, CancerCare in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. She has served as the editor for the journal, Nursing for Women’s Health, the clinical practice journal of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nursing and is a contributing editor for the American Journal of Nursing. Katz has authored numerous books, chapters, and articles, and has served as the editor of the Survivorship Special Interest Group newsletter for ONS.
“We are very fortunate to have Dr. Katz assume the role of editor of the Oncology Nursing Forum,” said Barbara Sigler, RN, MNEd, publisher and director of publications for ONS. “We’re looking forward to working with her and carrying on the journal’s highly-respected reputation as we move forward.”
