PrEvCan campaign

PrEvCan cancer prevention campaign – Get involved!

The ground-breaking, Europe-wide “Cancer Prevention Across Europe” campaign (PrEvCan) is aimed at reducing the burden of cancer. PrEvCan is initiated and led by the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) with the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) as key campaign partner and with the support of more than 50 other international and national organisations across Europe.

The development of an
inter-specialty cancer training programme across Europe

EONS is part of INTERACT-EUROPE is an 18-month project (June 2022 - November 2023) co-ordinated by the European Cancer Organisation and co-funded by the EU under the EU4Health programme 2021-2027 as part of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.
World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day – Close the Care Gap, 4 February 2023

On World Cancer Day (WCD) on 4 February, EONS cancer nurses joined the call to Close the Care Gap.
This year, WCD called on us all to address the inequities in cancer treatment and mobilise communities to fight for equitable access. Education and accessibility are crucial to reducing the cancer burden — with income, gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation disproportionately affecting patients’ risk and survival rates.
People aware of the symptoms of cancer are more likely to seek a diagnosis and subsequently be treated. Access to clinical evaluation also determines the likelihood of surviving cancer.

The European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) and Ukraine

EONS stands with the people of Ukraine and supports the oncology workforce and people affected by cancer

The European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) is following developments in Ukraine with great sadness. Our mission is to ensure that all people affected by cancer benefit from equal, safe and high quality care. This brutal act of war is endangering all people in Ukraine – including the oncology workforce who, with other healthcare colleagues, are working under unbearable pressure. EONS stands firmly against all forms of violence and is hoping that this appalling situation, and its far-reaching consequences, can be defused for the sake of all innocent parties caught up in it. We encourage people to back European and International organisations in their support of the people of Ukraine. EONS will try its best to find ways to reach out to the oncology workforce and people affected by cancer and help in capacity building where possible.
War only brings loss, sadness and inhumane suffering and we truly hope for a quick, peaceful resolution. Our thoughts are with all the people of Ukraine.

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.
