Novice Research Dissemination Award
About the Novice Research Dissemination Award
This award is an initiative of the EONS Research Working Group. It was launched in 2013 to encourage cancer nurses who are relatively new to research. The award is intended to give nurses their first chance to present their research at an international conference, so it is only open to nurses who have not yet presented their research outside their own country.
The award is open to applications from nurses with no experience of presenting their research outside their own country and less than five years’ experience of research. As part of the prize, the winners will receive free registration to the ESMO 2019 Congress along with funding towards their travel (economy fare) and accommodation expenses (max. 3 nights) from EONS. The winners will be awarded and invited to briefly present their work during the Congress.
To be eligible for the award applicants must:
- Be a cancer nurse with less than five years’ research experience
- Be an EONS member (either as individual member or with her/his national oncology nursing society, member of EONS)
- Have no previous experience of presenting their research at an international conference
And must submit in one of the following categories:
- Digital innovations in health
- Palliative and end-of-life care
- Patient and occupational safety
- Psychosocial care and survivorship
- Symptom management
- Translating research into practice
ONLY abstract submissions made in the six Cancer Nursing categories will be considered by EONS for an EONS Novice Research Dissemination Award.
