The International Society for Nurses in Cancer Care is hosting its annual conference, the International Conference on Cancer Nursing from 2-5 February 2021. Here are four highlights you will not want to miss from this four-day meeting, featuring a bustle of plenary sessions, poster sessions, interactive, educational workshops, and much more!
Networking: The Key to Success
As ICCN 2021 is attended by practitioners, researchers, educators and many others related to the field of cancer nursing, this event is a great opportunity for attendees to share their experiences and gain insight on practices from other insightful perspectives. Alongside interesting plenary presentations and captivating sessions, ICCN 2021 will also include workshops where attendees will have an opportunity to connect with industry partners and broaden their horizons.
ICCN 2021 is going online due to unforeseen events in the past year. The ISNCC Board of Directors put the health and welfare of participants and the local host community at the forefront of its decision making. The increasing risk assessment regarding the spread of COVID-19 and the travel restrictions that are changing daily led us to take this decision. We are also aware that domestic and international restrictions are likely to impact many of our colleagues’ ability to participate. Virtual events much cheaper to attend and not just in terms of ticket price! Often, global conferences not only have a ticket price associated, but there are extra costs such as travel, accommodation, transport, food and more. This virtual conference will eliminate all those ‘extra’ costs and gives the opportunity to organizations to have more representatives attend ICCN 2021.
Nurses - An Essential Part of the Workforce
By participating at ICCN 2021, you can be a part of a global movement and contribute to the development of the oncology nursing field. Considering that more than 50% of the health workforce are nurses and midwives, it is crucial that we celebrate, appreciate, and ensure that all nurses are receiving opportunities to further develop their knowledge. This virtual conference will allow you to attend from the comfort and safety of your home or office – this means a much more relaxed environment. You do not need to walk around the venue to find the room for each session or even the restroom; you can sit on your couch or your own office and just enjoy the presentations. This means less stress, less tiredness, and more energy to dedicate to staying focused on the content that matters to you.
Learn, Try, Succeed
Take advantage of the pre-conference workshops as well as the exhibition, where attendees will have an opportunity to not only learn about trends and try new techniques but also succeed in their education beyond the classroom. Under the official conference theme of “Innovation and Inspiration: Celebrating the Global Impact of Oncology Nurses”, stay up-to-date on the latest nursing practices from different corners of the world.
