Oncology Nursing Society launches innovation center

The Oncology Nursing Society has established a Center for Innovation at its Pittsburgh headquarters to develop resources, projects, programs and applications to promote nurses' expertise in cancer care.

The center's work will be focused on advancing the organization's new and existing projects to help nurses adapt to new and rapidly changing technologies, workforce dynamics, workflow changes and patient expectations. The center will be led by Executive Director Melanie Miller, BSN.

"The Center is not only to produce ONS resources but to inspire oncology nurses to elevate their problem-solving to developing innovative solutions to challenges they face," Ms. Miller said. "We want to ensure that the voice and expertise of oncology nurses is present among key stakeholders who are engaged in creating transformative care, improving quality and outcomes, and developing resources and processes that impact cost-effectiveness and workflow efficiency for cancer care delivery."
