Licensing Opportunities

License ONS Products

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.
