Danish Cancer Nurses Society (FSK) at MASCC / ISOO

    FSK nurses at MASCC/ISOO 2015

    The 2015 MASCC/ISOO International Symposium on Supportive Care in Cancer took place in Copenhagen, so the Danish Cancer Nurses Society (FSK) was a strong presence. We held our own conference for Danish cancer nurses under the umbrella of the main MASCC conference.

    The theme of the conference was “Quality of life - rehabilitation”.

    Danish nursing researchers, a Swedish nursing researcher and a scientist from Cyprus were all invited to the conference so that they could share their knowledge with participants. It was a wonderful forum for networking and knowledge-sharing. Participants came from Denmark, Sweden, Italy, France and the Faroe Islands.

    There was also a reception linked to the conference, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the society.

    In November 2015 the Danish Cancer Nurses Society will hold its annual national conference. The theme this year will be “The cancer patient’s journey”.

    The Danish Cancer Nurses Society will of course be represented at the EONS Advisory Council meeting in Athens in November.
