More than 500 oncology nurses from all over Europe and beyond have gathered in Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, to share their knowledge and develop their skills at the EONS-10 Congress.

The hugely successful event, on 17 and 18 October, took place alongside the 18th International Psycho Oncology Society (IPOS) Congress and was hosted by the Irish Cancer Society and the Irish Association for Nurses in Oncology (IANO).

EONS President Professor Daniel Kelly and Scientific Committee Chair Professor Mary Wells welcomed everyone to the landmark congress, which was then opened by the Irish Minister for Health, Simon Harris.

The overall theme of EONS-10 was Balancing health care needs in a changing context: a close examination of the physical and psychosocial care needs of patients and their families in the context of demographic change and constant advances in diagnosis and treatment.

Meinir Krishnasamy, Professor of Cancer Nursing at University of Melbourne, Australia, addressed many of these important themes in her keynote speech.

The congress offered delegates a fantastic opportunity to network with nurse leaders and colleagues from around the world and benefit from a packed scientific and educational programme.

Participants could choose from a wide range of sessions and workshops, on topics such as Supporting parents with cancer who have young children, Care Dependence in Patients with Cancer and Establishing priorities for cancer nursing research, with speakers from Sweden to Turkey and Italy to The Netherlands.

Cancer nurses and other key members of the multi-professional team discussed the care needs of patients and their families and the challenges that nurses face in providing comprehensive care in a fast-changing world.
