You’ll be able to join sessions on many fascinating themes, from ‘Professional and educational issues in cancer nursing in Eastern European countries’ to ‘Building resilience among YCNs’; attend symposiums on a range of topics, from cancer pain management, to prehab and rehab for patients with CAR T cell therapy, and much more. In the opening and closing sessions, you’ll find out about the latest EONS projects, including the European College of Cancer Nursing launching later this year and the EONS Cancer Nursing Framework update too, and, you won’t want to miss the EONS Lifetime Achievement and RECaN Awards ceremony – it could be you!


EONS President Johan de Munter & EONS President Elect Virpi Sulosaari

EONS President Johan de Munter – Welcome to three inspirational days:  
“The EONS15 conference is a must for all European cancer nurses. It’s about learning and growing your knowledge and skills, but it’s also about being inspired, networking with colleagues from other countries and gaining the confidence to develop your career in exciting new ways. Year after year, we hear from cancer nurses who tell us that attending the conference was a turning point for them, providing a new foundation on which to build the rest of their careers. When I attended my first EONS conference, I never thought that one day I would be EONS President! Trust me, these three inspirational days will change your working life for many years to come ¬– whether your dream is to be a cancer nurse leader, a specialist in a particular field or simply, and most importantly, to be the best cancer nurse you can be. I greatly look forward to meeting you in Paris for a truly memorable few days together!”

EONS President Elect Virpi Sulosaari looks forward to meeting you: 
“I remember my first EONS conference – I learnt so much and met so many wonderful people. The educational sessions and symposia are of course very important, but there’s also something really special about meeting colleagues from across Europe and hearing about their day-to-day experiences with people affected by cancer. This is what is so exciting about being able to come together again after Covid-19 – there’s a special magic that you just don’t experience from being online. Those conversations we will have around the conference centre, over coffee, out for dinner in the evening, are pure gold. I still have many professional friends I met at my first conference, and I look forward to meeting new ones this year – I very much hope one of them will be you!”
