Johan de Munter at the European Cancer Summit 2021

We need to do more to train and retain cancer nurses!

''We have increasing risks around retaining the cancer nursing workforce and having enough cancer nurse specialist in the future. Cancer nurses need access to education, support and recognition. We need to act now!'' says EONS President Johan de Munter during the European Cancer Summit 2021. Johan also signed off The European Cancer Summit 2021 Declaration.

European Cancer Summit 2021

'From Plans to Action'

A brighter future for healthcare and cancer care across Europe can be built out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, the EU Mission on Cancer, the European Health Data Space, and the new EU Pharmaceutical Strategy, among other initiatives, are all arriving on time to achieve this. With implementation activity across these major policy drives already underway, the Declaration from the European Cancer Summit 2021 encapsulates the headlines of overall advice from the cancer community at this time.
EONS President Johan de Munter signed the declaration.
EONS Cancer Prevention Plan 2021-2023

EONS Cancer Prevention Plan 2021-2023

There is no single universal solution for cancer prevention. Successful prevention requires a combination of individual preventive actions (by avoiding or reducing harmful exposures) as well as group actions (when exposure is eliminated or reduced by measures effective at the population level). The EONS Cancer Prevention Plan (ECPP) includes several activities, all with the aim of raising awareness, building capacity, promoting health and addressing health literacy.
The Plan was launched in May 2021 and will continue until December 2023.

EONS Guide to Establish a Cancer Nursing Society

This guide has been prepared by EONS and has been developed in response to member feedback and suggestions. The document is intended to guide cancer nurse leaders to set up a National Cancer Nursing Society (or equivalent) in countries where these societies do not exist, to empower staff of existing national societies to manage their organisation more effectively and strengthen their bond with EONS.
