The Excellence in Patient Education (EPE) Award was presented annually by EONS from 2005 to 2011 inclusive.

The aim of the Award was to honour individual nurses or organisations who did consistently excellent work in educating cancer patients about their disease and its treatments. It was awarded for the creation of innovative and high-quality patient education materials. It was open to both organisations and individual nurses. The final EPE award was presented in 2011.
