The Masterclass in Oncology Nursing programme is designed for European advanced cancer nurses as a multi professional joint event.
3-and-half 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.
Nursing sessions are specific nursing-oriented sessions exploring specialist practice skills such as assessment and safety, communication skills, complex symptom management, research in nursing, psychosocial consequences of cancer therapy to mention a few.
Other sessions will provide the forum for reviewing and understanding the growing evidence base for nursing interventions and reflect on participant’s role in clinical leadership.
Case studies will be presented by the participants and will explore nursing practice focusing on special aspects of care.
Special joint sessions, together with physicians, will highlight and support the growing need for multiprofessionality in chosen topics.
Practical training will be offered in case study sessions focusing on skills necessary for patient care management.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
