About

CURE Magazine is excited to announce the launch of the Bone Health Champions awards - the first award of its kind that honors those who go above and beyond to prioritize patients’ bone health. 

At the Bone Health Champions Award for Oncology Nursing reception, held in conjunction with the Oncology Nursing Society's (ONS) Annual Congress and attended by hundreds of nurses from across the country, four winners will be announced and recognized for his or her service to cancer patients and survivors.

In addition to the presentation of the finalist essays, the reception also features a recognized keynote speaker and a sit down dinner. In 2018, the awards ceremony and celebration will be held during the 43rd ONS Annual Congress in Washington D.C.

What does it take to be a BHC?

A bone health champion is someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that their patients’ bone health is prioritized. Once patients are diagnosed with bone metastases, bone health often falls off the radar until patients suffer a devastating bone complication.

A Bone Health Champion:

  • Is committed to raising awareness of bone health in their practice and the community
  • Educates their patients on the risk of devastating impacts of bone complications
  • Is proactive in preventing bone complications in their patients diagnosed with bone metastases
  • Champions on behalf of their patients to ensure that their practice is doing all that they can for patients’ bone health
  • Is actively involved in efforts to make advancements in patients’ bone health.

A bone health champion can be an advanced practitioner, nurse or nurse navigator involved in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of bone complications in patients diagnosed with bone metastases.

 

Thank you to everyone for a successful Bone Health Champions Award event! Congratulations to all of our 2018 Champions!
