UNC School of Nursing Faculty Ashley Leak Bryant, Deborah Mayer, and Lixin Song co-authored the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) 2019-2022 Research Agenda. Three priority areas for scientific development were identified: symptom science, health disparities, and palliative and psychosocial care in oncology. In addition, cross-cutting themes that provide context and elaboration for these priorities emerged. You can find more about the research agenda here.
In Spring and Summer 2019, Ashley Leak Bryant and Deborah Mayer were appointed to serve on the ONS strategic roadmap project for 2029. This strategic planning process explored what the role of the oncology nurse will look like in 2029 and ways in which the ONS can support that role.
Excellent representation of UNC School of Nursing oncology faculty!
