ESMO 2020 | EONS: Young Cancer Nurses study

Amanda Drury, PhD, MSc, BSc (Hons), University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland, discusses a recent study sponsored by the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) investigating young cancer nurses and the barriers that are presented to them in their profession. This is ever more important due to the context of an aging workforce and the fact the healthcare will lose an older generation of nurses, meaning that the young cancer nurses need to be motivated to stay in the profession. The study highlights the need for protected time, financial support to engage in education, formal mentorship with how they engage with career development opportunities, and finally, being empowered to take on leadership roles. This interview was recorded via an online conference call with The Video Journal of Oncology (VJOncology).
