Almost 60% of European countries do not recognise cancer nursing as a defined specialty, and therefore do not provide targeted educational programmes. This has resulted in vast differences in the education levels and roles of cancer nurses across European countries. The CARE strategy, developed by the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), is made up of 31 national cancer nursing societies and aims to address these issues. They run educational events and conferences, and provide online learning resources, among other valuable services. Lena Sharp, President of EONS, gives us an insight into the CARE strategy and the difficulties prevalent in cancer nursing, and how EONS are working with ESMO to create change in this area.
