The European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) and humanitarian crises

EONS stands in unwavering support alongside our fellow healthcare professionals, organisations, and communities facing humanitarian crises

At the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), we stand in unwavering support alongside our fellow healthcare professionals, organisations, and communities facing humanitarian crises. The impact of such events on cancer care and those navigating their cancer journey during these times is profound. We recognise the added strain on patients, families, and healthcare workers, including the dedicated cancer nurses who play a pivotal role in providing continuous care and support in the face of adversity.

Together, in collaboration with other organisations, we are committed to ensuring that no one has to face these challenges alone. Our mission extends beyond borders, embracing inclusivity and support for all affected by these disasters, irrespective of geography. We aim to work hand in hand with organisations worldwide to mobilise resources, share knowledge, and offer the support needed to rebuild, heal, and strengthen the communities we serve.

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.
