EONS Online Patient and Occupational Safety Webinars

Education for registered nurses in cancer care©

This free of charge education programme has been developed by a group of leading cancer nursing experts for the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) in 2020. The programme is designed for clinical cancer nurses across Europe, at all stages of their career.

The third webinar, on Safety Culture, took place on 23 August at 18:30 CET.

Content of the safety webinars

The education programme covers different aspects of patient and occupational safety in cancer care. Four webinars will cover the following content:

Webinar 1        Handling cancer drugs during pregnancy and breast feeding
Webinar 2        Personal Protection Equipment
Webinar 3        Safety Culture
Webinar 4        Effective communication, key to safe cancer care

Each webinar will include lectures by leading experts, discussions, Q and A and reflections from cancer nurses across Europe.  The webinars will be sent live (but with lectures pre-recorded to allow for sub-titles in different languages). Registered students will have access to all content for six months after each live session. Documentation is provided (both regulatory documents, guidelines and published research) for each webinar. The webinars will be followed by an online test, based on both the webinars and provided literature for nurses requesting a certificate with recommended credits.

Learning outcomes

After completing this education, cancer nurses will be able to:

  1. Describe and demonstrate safety principles related to administration of hazardous antineoplastic drugs
  2. Describe and demonstrate how to optimize both patient and occupational safety related to hazardous antineoplastic drugs

The webinars are funded by EONS and without any involvement from the pharma industry or other commercial parties.
