May is Oncology Nurse's Month. This is our chance to recognize the contributions oncology nurses make in the lives of patients and their families. Thanks for all you do!

Oncology Nurses Month

Visit Us at ONS
We will once again be exhibiting at ONS Congress. Be sure to visit our booth in New Orleans (Booth #938). We'd love to show you what's new and hear your feedback and experiences using OncoLink in your practice.


Update on Version 9 of the LIVESTRONG Care Plan

We are hard at work on version 9 of the LIVESTRONG Care Plan, which will include "pathways" for each tumor type. This will make the questionnaire easier and faster to navigate. We should be ready to launch our latest version in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

Remember, we love to hear your feedback; it is often your opinions that inspire changes and improvements in the program. Would you like LIVESTRONG Care Plan flyers for your office/unit? Just contact us and we will be happy to send them.

Educating Nurses in Tanzania
OncoLink has been working on an Oncology Nursing Education Program in Tanzania, Africa for the past 2 years. Our first class of nurses has recently graduated from the program. Read about this amazing experience and how much these nurses are able to do with so little - it is inspiring!

Doesn't their story make you want to get involved? You can! Join our Nurses Forum and share your expertise with this group of nurses. They will be posting practice questions that come up at Ocean Road Cancer Institute and want our input!

Cancer Risk Program featured on Philly.com
What's My Cancer Risk?Congratulations to our What's My Risk? Team. OncoLink has teamed up with Philly.com, the website for the leading Philadelphia newspaper, The Inquirer, for a special month-long project. A daily fact about cancer risk has been featured on Philly.com/health. What's My Risk? is designed to help users learn about their personal risk for cancer and what they can do to decrease that risk. Suggest this great program to friends and patients' family members when they are wondering about their own risk of cancer.
