EONS Leadership Summit, Sunday 19 November and Monday 20 November 2017.
Ede, The Netherlands

EONS, together with our partners at the USA’s Oncology Nursing Society, has organised an important summit which will focus on nursing leadership. Excellent speakers will focus on the different aspect of leadership from a personal, professional, clinical and political point of view. This summit is aimed at cancer nurses, nurse managers, policy makers, educators and nurse directors. It will cover a range of important topics presented by professional nurse leaders, including:

  • clinical leadership
  • leading the team
  • communication in cancer care
  • management styles
  • your profile as a leader
  • professional strengths and weaknesses
  • setting the political agenda
  • and more…

The purpose of this summit is to improve nurses’ personal and professional capacity and effectiveness as leaders, something which we think is critical to improving cancer care in the challenging healthcare situation in Europe and beyond. The programme is available in the Further Information section of this page.
