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.

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.

In joint Clinical sessions, nurses will, together with physicians, update their clinical knowledge about the latest issues for the management of various cancers, with an international faculty of experts.

Special joint sessions on pain control, survivorship, new oncological emergencies and oral cancer therapies will be supported by workshops and coaching to explore nursing practice in these speciality areas.

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.
