Oncology Solutions is pleased to announce that Tricia Strusowski, MS, RN, Manager, will be joining the American Cancer Society’s newly formed National Navigation Roundtable (NNRT). The NNRT is composed of more than 50 esteemed healthcare professionals from across the country with subject-matter expertise in oncology navigation.
Led by chairs Tracy Battaglia, MD, MPH, and Andrea Dwyer as well as a Steering Committee, this collaboration seeks to enhance health equity, improve health outcomes, and broaden access to quality care through a focus on patient navigation. The NNRT will act as a support organization for the field, deriving its value from the expertise of its members. Tricia will co-chair the Evidence-Based Promising Practices Committee.
“We are excited about the National Navigation Roundtable and its value for navigators and cancer patients. We are thrilled that Tricia was hand selected to be part of this important dialogue,” said Rhonda S. Mealor, senior/managing partner of Oncology Solutions.
With more than 30 years of experience in the oncology field, Tricia has worked in a variety of roles, including an oncology nurse, nurse manager, and case manager. Her passion is inpatient and family-centered care in the oncology landscape. Tricia puts this rich work history to practice in consulting on the strategic planning and implementation of nurse navigation programs within private practices, hospitals, and health systems across the country. Tricia is a frequent blogger at ACCCBuzz and is an active member in the development of standards and measures for the healthcare community. She serves as the chair of the AONN+ Evidence into Practice Metrics Subcommittee.
Her knowledge and experience are invaluable assets to Oncology Solutions, a consultancy dedicated exclusively to the development of comprehensive cancer programs, facilities, and services. We look forward to the advancements in oncology navigation that this new venture will provide.
