EONS Leadership Summit 2017
Ede summit inspires cancer nurses to lead!
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 gathered in Ede, near Amsterdam, in The Netherlands for the EONS Leadership Summit.
All who attended agreed that it was a highly inspiring two days packed with useful advice on how to become a leader – at any stage of your cancer nursing career.
EONS organised the event together with our partners at the USA’s Oncology Nursing Society. The summit was designed to improve nurses’ personal and professional capacity and effectiveness as leaders, something which is critical to improving cancer care in the challenging healthcare situation in Europe and beyond.
A range of excellent speakers examined 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. The next issue of the EONS Magazine will feature in-depth reports and more pictures from the presentations and workshops that took place across the two days.
