Friday, September 07, 2012
The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) Seal of Approval program is designed to assist healthcare professionals and consumers in selecting quality educational materials related to cancer care. For providers of health education resources, the ONS Seal of Approval is a valuable symbol of recognition by one of the most respected organizations in cancer care.
"ONS is pleased to provide the Seal of Approval program to help meet our members' needs for trusted information related to cancer care," said Dana Barkley, BS, MS, Corporate Relations Manager. "This valuable review program ensures that educational programs and materials are reliable and credible."
