Training Initiative on Thrombocytopenia, Anaemia and Neutropenia (TITAN)

The EONS TITAN programme is a training and education initiative designed to improve nurses’ skills and knowledge when working with patients with cancer-related thrombocytopenia, anaemia and neutropenia. The updated programme has been just approved by the EONS Board for wide dissemination to any individual EONS members or to the EONS National Societies members. TITAN 2018 – will be available for EONS members who intend to organise a TITAN course in their own country upon completion of an online application to EONS Secretariat. Stay tuned for this announcement.

The TITAN 2018 update provides comprehensive up-to-date information about the management of these cancer treatment-related complications and guidelines on patient education, and consists of:

  • A pre-course book
  • 7 slide power point presentations
  • Guidelines for TITAN 2018 organisers
  • Guidelines for creating a case study
  • Pre-course test
  • Programme sample
  • Course evaluation form

Over the years, EONS has worked with the National Societies to deliver this programme for cancer nurses across Europe. A task group of European experts started on this revision in October 2016 and finalised the work in early 2018.

Task group members:

  • Erik van Muilekom, chair, The Netherlands
  • Patrick Crombez, co-chair, Belgium
  • Johan de Munter, Belgium
  • Christine Schneider-Worliczek, Austria
  • Arno Mank, The Netherlands
  • Elisabeth Wallhult, Sweden

EONS would like to thank AMGEN, TAKEDA and TEVA Pharmaceuticals for their support through an unrestricted educational grant.

This TITAN update is an EONS/EMBT joint project.
