Vision for Cancer Nursing, EONS President Johan de Munter

"Innovative education and training, continuing education programmes, occupational safety measures, leadership programmes, resilience training and burnout prevention interventions, and increased recognition of the cancer nursing workforce across Europe, are already documented solutions to build a sustainable future and secure the cancer nursing workforce."
European Commissioner for Health Stella Kyriakides addressed the EONS14 Conference

EONS14 - European Commissioner for Health pays tribute to cancer nurses

"I know perfectly well how crucially important cancer nurses are in delivering safe and high-quality prevention and care. You play a key role in each step of a patient’s pathway, mine included.
That is why the Europe's Beating Cancer Plan supports dedicated cancer care professionals like you."
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.
