EONS13 – The Future of Cancer Nursing in the Year of the Nurse and Midwife

Banner: Registration for EONS13

Following our excellent partnership with our friends at ESMO last year in Barcelona, we are delighted to be able to announce that we will again be joining with them this year at ESMO2020 (18-22 September) in Madrid, Spain, for our conference – EONS13 (19-21 September).

The theme of the EONS Cancer Nursing Track is: The Future of Cancer Nursing in the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. You can download a PDF draft programme from the Further Information section of this page – this will develop over the coming months as top speakers are engaged.

The registration rate to attend is €459,80 (including VAT) – that gains you entry to all the ESMO sessions as well as the full EONS programme of speakers and events. It’s fantastic value!

This year, for the first time, EONS will be offering a €84,70 registration fee including VAT for students and young cancer nurses (under 35)! There will also be a limited bursary fund available for which EONS members from low and middle income countries will be able to apply. More information about these will be available soon!

When booking your trip you are advised to use the ESMO accommodation provider to avoid fraudulent accommodation companies. (EONS can also provide a service to link up individual nurses who would like to look for shared, cheaper accommodation – contact eons.secretariat@cancernurse.eu. However, you will remain responsible for making your own bookings.)

Registration is now open! Register here
