ECCO Congress 2017

Current challenges, future opportunities in cancer nursing - EONS at ECCO2017

ECCO Congress 2017Oncology nurses travelled through from all over Europe to gather at ECCO 2017 at the Amsterdam Rai from 27-30 January.

Keen not to miss this chance to be part of the biggest multidisciplinary oncology Congress in Europe, they came from far and wide - from Sweden to Greece, Ireland to Estonia.

The highlight for members of the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) was the opening day (27/1): EONS ran a bespoke programme packed with opportunities to learn, develop nursing practice and meet colleagues from all over Europe.

Sessions addressed powerful themes such as Developing and sustaining the European cancer nursing workforce, Influencing cancer care - the power of nursing, and The future of cancer nursing.

EONS President Danny Kelly examined The current situation of cancer nursing in Europe in relation to EONS ongoing Oncopolicy Project and President-Elect Lena Sharp looked at The importance of strong leadership for retaining cancer nurses.

Other high profile speakers addressed important topics such as Work environment and strategies to improve work satisfaction (J. Broekhuizen, Netherlands), The impact nurses have on the health of the global population (J. Shamian, Czech Republic) and Innovation practice and better patient outcomes, Y. Wengström (Sweden), and much more.

For those staying on for the full Congress, EONS Board Member Patrick Crombez signposted hot topics from the rest of the ECCO Scientific Programme over the following three days.
