EONS Cancer Nursing Index 2022

ECNI2022 – Results now available

We are happy to report that the finding and data from the EONS Cancer Nursing Index 2020 survey are now available: You can download the country reports from the Further Information column of this page.

In 2020, EONS collected data on the current status and development of cancer nursing from more than 650 nurses in 42 European countries. The analysed data were presented as the European Cancer Nursing Index 2020©, and described both the overall situation and also important differences between countries. This Index was presented at various meetings and congresses and also used to successfully advocate for better education, safety and recognition for cancer nursing in Europe – find out more here.

To measure development and progress, EONS carried out an update, the European Cancer Nursing Index 2022©. We invited cancer nurses across Europe to respond to an online survey, covering similar areas as the previous version of the Index. A total of 630 nurses from 29 countries responded to the online ECNI 2022 survey. In this revision, we focused more on each respondent’s workplace, in order to better highlight regional differences. We also added questions related to the Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences for cancer nursing, as well as questions on staffing levels. The survey and an invitation letter outlining our aims was available in 16 languages.
