On behalf of the ISNCC Board of Directors, it is with great regret that we announce that the International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN 2020) will be postponed until 28-31 March 2021.
This decision was taken after close monitoring of the rising global risk assessment by the World Health Organization of the COVID19 outbreak. Although the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 Virus is currently assessed as moderate in the United Kingdom and enthusiasm for ICCN 2020 has remained high, the global situation is changing every day in unpredictable ways.
We recognise the need to care for the health and welfare of our participants and of the host community. We are cognisant of the travel restrictions that are being extended on a daily basis and impacting our colleagues' ability to attend ICCN2020 and we want to express our support for our colleagues who are in the frontlines of caring for their patients. We also are aware that health institutions, organisations and education facilities are restricting employees and students travel and participation in upcoming conferences.
Please note that registration fees will be transferred towards the 2021 International Conference on Cancer Nursing, at no increased cost to participants. For those who prefer, registration fees will be reimbursed, less an administrative fee. Any travel and accommodation not directly booked through the Conference Secretariat will be at the discretion of the individual provider's policy. Accommodations booked via the Conference Secretariat please refer to the below FAQ.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), any further information will be sent directly to delegates and partners and will be posted on our website in the coming days.
We look forward to inviting you to London, UK on 28-31 March 2021!
Please check back for more updates as the International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care continues to prepare a fantastic programme at the Imperial College in 2021.
The International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN) is the longest running international conference for our profession and offers a unique opportunity to meet with international cancer nursing leaders from around the world, in one place, at one time.
