Want to keep the conversation going after an amazing session? Still have questions you want to ask? Have colleagues you want to collaborate with from other institutions? If so, our roundtable discussions may be just what you’re looking for! 

All ONS Congress attendees are able to participate in roundtable discussions, an opportunity to network with others on clinical best practices, research interests, and more. In Washington, DC, we will have roundtable discussions for the following learning tracks: Clinical Practice, Research, Management/Staff Education, and—new for this year—Radiation! Please see the lists below for the tentative topics in each track. 

Each roundtable session offers several facilitated discussions where you will learn from the experts as well as one another. Whether you stay at one discussion the whole time or bounce from one topic to another, all are welcome to share their knowledge and best practices. 

Hot Topics in Clinical Practice: Roundtable Discussions 
Thursday, April 25, from 3–4 pm 
Potential topics include handoff communication between inpatient, outpatient, and infusion practices; preinfusion chemotherapy education; financial toxicity resources; cold cap best practices; and oncology nurse navigation and billing.  

Hot Topics in Research: Roundtable Discussions
Friday, April 26, from 10–11 am 
Potential topics include sexual health research, adolescent and young adult research, symptom science, caregiver research, fellowships and early-stage career development, and oncology nurse scientist roles (in cancer centers and academia).  

Hot Topics in Management/Staff Education: Roundtable Discussions 
Friday, April 26, from 3–4 pm 
Potential topics include antineoplastic education and competency; staffing and scheduling; virtual education; preceptorship; onboarding, new graduates, and new-to-oncology fellowships; and telephone triage competency.
