Objectives of the working group
The objectives of the working group are to:
- develop an EONS regulatory/policy strategy; prioritising activities that support the EONS strategy.
- represent the views of cancer nurses in the European policy/regulatory arena.
- engage with other NGOs, governments etc. in a prioritised manner (stakeholder relationship management plan).
- work together with stakeholders on relevant policy/regulatory issues that link to the EONS strategy.
- develop EONS position statements and opinions in areas that support the EONS strategy.
- work in close partnership with the Communication Working Group, looking at how the cancer nurse voice is communicated at a strategic and policy level and how EONS represents itself, its work, and its members visually. Particular attention will be paid to how the membership voice is listened to and heard.
