  • To inform EONS members, key stakeholders and other constituents regarding EONS activity and business using different media
  • To support EONS in developing a strong working relationship with EONS National Member Societies and all key cancer organisations and agencies across Europe and Internationally
  • To provide the opportunity for the membership societies to make their voice heard. To communicate feedback received from the membership societies to the board, for follow up actions
  • To work closely in partnership with other EONS working groups looking at how the cancer nurse voice is communicated at a strategic and policy level
  • To maintain & strengthen (continue to develop) EONS’ social media footprint using different tools and enablers

The working group ambition is to develop systems that support the development of EONS through direct and indirect feedback from the clinical community.
