European Cancer Nursing Day 2018
European Cancer Nursing Day 2018 – Join in on 18 May!
Thousands of cancer nurses across Europe will mark European Cancer Nursing Day (ECND) on Friday 18 May 2018, with celebrations taking place in cancer centres from Sweden to Slovakia and Ireland to Estonia.
This important day in the cancer nursing calendar, organised by the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), is underpinned with some very strong message and objectives. ECND2018 is calling for high-level recognition of the unique contribution of cancer nursing across Europe and focuses on the importance of education and training to support it as a recognised speciality.
To this end, ECND2018 has two major highlights:
- 16th May: An advocacy event at the European Parliament with the MEPS Against Cancer (MAC) hosted by Marian Harkin MEP and the MAC President Alojz Peterle MEP. We’ll be sharing the findings of our groundbreaking Recognising European Cancer Nursing (RECaN) project, and
- 18th May: Launch of a new, updated Cancer Nursing Education Framework
Both the Framework and the event at the European Parliament are important steps on the way to full recognition of the value and contribution of oncology nursing.
