The Masterclass in Oncology Nursing programme is designed for advanced oncology nurses as a multi-professional joint event. Five intensive days of full immersion in up-to-date oncology will create a collective spirit of teaching and learning to improving clinical skills and patient care.

In joint Clinical sessions, nurses will, together with physicians, update their clinical knowledge about the latest issues for the management of breast, gynaecological, prostate, colorectal cancer and lung cancer, with an international faculty of experts. Special joint sessions in supportive care, communication skills and palliative care will be supported by workshops and coaching to explore nursing practice in these speciality areas.

Nursing sessions are specific nursing-oriented sessions exploring specialist practice skills such as advanced assessment, decision making, communication skills, complex symptom management, care of the older patient, psychosexual consequences of cancer therapy and long term adverse effects of cancer therapy and  managing advanced disease.

Practical training will be offered in smaller group optional sessions and coaching groups  focusing on skills required for the management of active therapy and follow up for example assessing psychological distress, managing sexual concerns raised by patients. Furthermore reviewing and understanding the growing evidence base for nursing interventions plus reflections on participant’s role in clinical leadership.
