NEW YORK, March 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Haymarket Media Inc. is now the publisher of two leading journals for cancer clinicians, The American Journal of Hematology/Oncology and Oncology Nursing News, under an agreement announced today. Both titles were previously published by U.S. HealthCare Communications, of Highland Park, NJ.
"We are very pleased to add a strong oncology presence to the Haymarket clinical family," said Lee Maniscalco, CEO. "The practical, clinical guidance these publications offer to their readers, and the wide variety of Continuing Education opportunities they provide throughout the year -- within the journals themselves, in special supplements, and in Web-based initiatives -- make this a perfect fit for Haymarket. The addition of these two publications is entirely consistent with our goal of expanding and enhancing learning opportunities for practicing cancer clinicians nationwide."
The American Journal of Hematology/Oncology (AJHO) reaches oncologists, hematologists, and other cancer clinicians nationwide. Each monthly issue offers concise summaries and expert commentaries on the peer-reviewed scientific literature and conference proceedings, so that the latest research findings can be applied in day-to-day patient care. The editorial board is headed by Lawrence N. Shulman, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston; and Douglas J. Schwartzentruber, MD, Medical Director of the Goshen Center for Cancer Care, Goshen, Indiana. Marcus E. Randall, MD, Professor and Chair of Radiation Medicine at the University of Kentucky School of Medicine, Lexington, serves AJHO as Associate Editor for Radiation Oncology. Each issue of the journal offers Continuing Medical Education accredited by Harvard Medical School.
Oncology Nursing News (ONN) provides late-breaking clinical news and practical guidance to nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants across all settings of cancer care and supportive services. ONN offers coverage from the most significant oncology meetings throughout the year, news of clinical relevance from the peer-reviewed literature, and how-to advice based on the clinical and management experiences of leading oncology nurses. The Editor in Chief is Regina Cunningham, PhD, RN, AOCN, Chief Nursing Officer of The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick.
"We look forward to working with the staffs of these publications and the outstanding experts who serve on their editorial boards to bring the very best and latest information to the dedicated clinicians who care for cancer patients," said Maniscalco.
