6-10 October 2023, in Varese, Italy
Chair: Johan de Munter, Be
Coordinator: Theresa Wiseman, UK
Advisor: Mathias Hellberg-Naegele, CH
The Masterclass in Oncology Nursing programme is designed for European advanced cancer nurses as a multi professional joint event. Four intensive days of full immersion in up-to-date oncology will take place in a collective spirit of teaching and learning to improve clinical skills and patient care.
The specific nursing-oriented sessions will explore specialist practice skills such as assessment and decision making, communication skills, complex symptom management, research in nursing, psychosocial consequences of cancer therapy, and more. Other sessions will provide a forum for reviewing and understanding the growing evidence base for nursing interventions and reflect on participants’ role in clinical leadership. Case studies will be presented by the participants and will explore nursing practice focusing on special aspects of care. Special joint sessions with physicians will highlight and support the growing need for multiprofessionality in chosen topics. Practical training will be offered in smaller group sessions, case study sessions focusing on skills necessary for patient care management.
