Lauren G. Cliffel, MSW, looks forward to the upcoming 2022 Association of VA Hematology/Oncology (AVAHO) annual meeting and the opportunity to connect in-person with social workers, physicians, nurses, cancer navigators, and other cancer care providers who share a mission to establish and expand oncology programs for veterans.

The theme of this year's annual meeting is "Your Best Version: Self-care in Cancer Care." Sessions include a discussion by a cancer care provider who was also a cancer patient, as well as presentations on the VA Whole Health initiative, survivorship, palliative care, and the Schwartz Rounds initiative. In addition, there will be sessions on self-care that include methods to address burnout and compassion fatigue.
