These workshops are designed for oncology nurses who have identified an issue related to their clinical practice and would like to investigate it by carrying out a research project. Most of the nurses who attend the workshops are oncology nurses educated to degree level or above. The workshops take place each year, and are designed to support nurses with an interest in research to develop their research proposal and gain advice and new perspectives on their doctoral studies.

The EONS Workshops help nurses to build the confidence and skills they need to put together a proposal for their research project, which can then be used to apply for funding.

Of course, even with an intensive workshop it is not possible to complete a research proposal in three days, so participating nurses are asked to identify a mentor who will provide ongoing advice and support to develop the full proposal. Mentors do not attend the workshop itself, but must commit to a certain amount of support.

Participants must send EONS a short progress report within three months of completing the workshop.
