EONS Leadership Summit 2017
Ede Leadership Summit Gets Underway!
EONS Leadership Summit, Sunday 19 November and Monday 20 November 2017.
Ede, The Netherlands
From Albania to Sweden and Spain to Estonia – cancer nurses from across Europe are gathering in Ede, near Amsterdam, in The Netherlands for the EONS Leadership Summit from 19-20 November.
You can follow the event on Twitter using the hashtag #ECNL17. We’ll also be posting some pictures on this page as the event progresses.
EONS has organised this event together with our partners at the USA’s Oncology Nursing Society, to focus on nursing leadership. 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.
A range of excellent speakers will examine the different aspect of leadership from a personal, professional, clinical and political point of view, 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…
These pictures give a flavour of the summit. For up to the minute updates, follow the event on Twitter using the hashtag #ECNL17.
