EONS – a proud partner in INTERACT-EUROPE training project
On the 27 and 28 June, several members of the EONS team came together with other associations/organisations from all spheres of European cancer care – including surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, oncology nurses, educators and more – to launch INTERACT-EUROPE, an ambitious EU project to promote inter-specialty cancer training.
As part of Europe’s new Beating Cancer Plan, EONS is part of a consortium of more than 30 professional associations/organisations and cancer centres from 15 countries who are creating a pioneering curriculum for inter-professional learning and development across borders. INTERACT-EUROPE (also known as Innovative collaboration for Inter-specialty cancer training across Europe), is a project led by the European Cancer Organisation (ECO) and co-funded by the EU4Health programme. The objective is for members of different oncology professions across EU countries to improve their “skills together” through joint training programmes. It is hoped this will enhance common understanding of oncology best practices, and help reduce inequalities in cancer care in Europe. Watch this space for more information.
