This year, in partnership with ESMO23, the European Oncology Nurses Society (EONS) held its annual meeting – EONS16.

The theme of EONS16 was ‘Cancer nursing: Building on innovation and building back better’. To address this, the event covered a wide range of topics including health promotion, prevention and screening; supportive and person-centred care; symptom management; palliative and end-of-life care; professional and educational issues in cancer nursing and a special collaborative session with young cancer nurses presenting in partnership with young oncologists. 

To help digest the key highlights from the many sessions during this three-day event we spoke, Virpi Sulosaari, the current EONS President.

Transcript

My name is Virpi Sulosaari. I am currently the President of the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS), and physically I’m based in Finland.

My highlights from EONS16 would be first of all the great atmosphere we had in the nursing sessions and moreover in the EONS’s lounge. It was so nice to see lively discussions, and the networking that was going on amongst the nurses.

The second highlight would be sustainability in cancer care. Many presentations touched on this topic, and there was one dedicated session on sustainability in cancer care. In that session, we looked into efficiency in cancer care and I specifically, liked the presentation on ‘what really matters for patients when we talk about efficiency in cancer care’.

My third highlight would be all the great presentations we had from cancer nursing researchers, but also those smaller-scale quality improvement projects and results presented by cancer nurses. Those quality improvement projects are also very important as they can have a significant impact on the lives of people with cancer.
