Research priorities

The research EONS fund and support should always be consistent with the vision, mission and CARE strategy of EONS. The research priorities reflect our membership priorities but also priorities set in a wider European context. Promoting evidence based clinical practice through research has always been a core function of EONS. EONS aims to ensure that the profile of oncology nursing research is increased throughout Europe and encourages practitioners to become researchers with support in funding, mentoring, publication and dissemination of results.

Opportunities for our members

As a result of our priorities, we created several opportunities to enhance the research skills of our members. We evaluated how our participants experienced:

2013 EONS Membership survey

Based on the 2013 EONS membership survey, EONS nurses work in a wide variety of roles in a range of practice settings, and as such, their views on research priorities differ according to the nature and focus of their work.

The membership survey still provides some useful information about particular research topics.
