The work of the group is mainly conducted through electronic communications. The group meets (at least) once a year for a face-to-face meeting to enhance connections and discuss strategic matters for this group’s development.

  • Educational Projects
  • Endorsement of courses and events
  • e-Grandrounds (in collaboration with ESO)

The objectives of the working group are to:

  • Provide direction and innovation in cancer nursing practice and education for the EONS board.
  • Provide expertise to scope and evaluate areas of cancer nursing practice that require educational development and review current materials.
  • Share expertise in relation to education and practice development.
  • Support initiatives that promote cancer nursing practice through education.

The Education Working Group is section of the EONS C.A.R.E strategy.
