About the EONS Magazine
In 2009, the EONS magazine was re-launched under the direction of the Executive Director. It created a new editorial team as well as delivering a fresh new design and format for the latest EONS news. Four editions per year were produced, with specialist themes including Prostate Cancer, Education and European Healthcare Policy. In 2011 it became clear that the role of editor required a significant time commitment that needed a dedicated, separate role. In 2012 searches for a new editor aimed to identify an oncology nurse with experience in publishing. This proved difficult and, in late 2012, it was agreed to broaden the search to include candidates from beyond the nursing field.
Advertisement of the broadened remit took place in early 2013 and we are pleased to announce that Helen Oswald has been appointed to the position of Editor-in-Chief.
Two editions of the magazine are planned for 2013.
The first will be on the theme of ‘rare cancers’ and will be produced in time for the European Cancer Congress scheduled in Amsterdam in September. Print and electronic copies will be made available for this edition.
The second edition will take as its theme: ‘The European Cancer Congress’. It will report on the latest research and educational developments in oncology nursing. It will be available for electronic download in early January.
