Cancer Nursing Fund

Strengthening Cancer Nurses to Improve Patient Care and Recovery

The Cancer Nursing Fund (CNF) was established on European Cancer Nursing Day 2020. The CNF is managed by the King Baudouin Foundation. The Fund is a unique opportunity to support the excellent work that cancer nurses do and advance the profession of cancer nursing in Europe. The CNF’s purpose is to ensure that all people affected by cancer benefit from high quality of care delivered by highly educated, well-informed and competent cancer nurses across the disease continuum. Donations to the CNF are made via the EONS website or the KBF website. The Fund supports activities in four areas: education, capacity building, research and innovation.

     Your donation will help cancer nurses to:

  • have more access to education to improve cancer care under the EONS Cancer Nursing Education Framework,
  • sustain the development of research carried out by cancer nurses,
  • enhance the capacity building of cancer nurses in Europe supporting participation in conferences, and
  • support the development and dissemination of innovative methods of cancer care and cancer prevention.

At EONS, we thank you for making all this possible.

About EONS and CNF
The European Oncology Society (EONS) is an umbrella organisation providing leadership in all areas of cancer nursing, research, practice, continuing education, communications and advocacy for better recognition of cancer nursing across Europe. Our mission is to ensure that all people affected by cancer benefit from the care of highly educated, well-informed and competent cancer nurses. EONS has members in 31 countries across Europe. The core strength of EONS comes from our members. We recognise the diverse aspects of nursing across Europe and strive for equality for all cancer nurses regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or disability. The improvement of patient safety and better clinical outcomes for cancer patients and their families is central to our work. The society firmly believes in working in partnerships across sectors and professions who share our goals and values. The Cancer Nursing Fund (CNF) was established by EONS in 2020 as an independent entity. It is part of the King Baudouin Foundation (KBF) and is overseen by a Steering Committee formed by members of EONS and KBF.
