The mission of the Oncology Nursing Forum (ONF), an official publication of ONS, is to amplify oncology nursing science and support the translation of research evidence to practice and policy. The intent of ONF is to foster health equity for individuals, families, and communities affected by cancer through dissemination of research that transforms cancer care in health systems and communities.
