Learn How ONS Can Help Your Institution

Oncology Nursing Society resources are available for licensing to institutions and vendors to support quality cancer care delivery at multiple points of interaction.
 

New: ONS On-Call™

Cancer treatment often causes symptoms that result in treatment delays and unplanned care. This adversely affects patient outcomes, healthcare costs, and patient satisfaction. To decrease these possibilities, the ONS Center for Innovation has launched ONS On-Call™, an oncology-specific decision support tool to guide standardized, evidence-based symptom assessments and leverage ONS’s proprietary evidence-based resources with patient-reported symptoms. Designed by nurses, this cloud-hosted tool ensures best practices in the clinic and institution by providing nurses with guided, comprehensive, and evidence-based assessments that illuminate the causative factors of patients’ symptoms and experience.

New: ONS On-Demand™

ONS On-Demand™ is a new distribution platform that offers an efficient solution to provide staff with access to evidence-based education from ONS. Staff can be assigned courses to access and complete, and those with administrative roles can view reports on course completion activity.  
ONS On-Demand supports nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) reporting requirements for accreditation programs and staff continuous professional development.

Oncology Nurse Orientation Program

The Oncology Nurse Orientation Program, available for institutional purchase only, provides didactic content for nurses new to oncology. This program builds on the Foundations of Oncology Nursing Practice Bundle (formerly Oncology Nurse Orientation Bundle) and includes flexible preceptor-led activities.  The ONS Oncology Nurse Orientation Program content is evidence-based, incorporates ONS standards and guidelines, and supports new oncology nurses working toward certification based on the ONS Oncology Nurse Generalist Competencies.
