EONS 2018 | How EONS is addressing the challenges faced by young oncology nurses

The European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) is dedicated to addressing some of the issues faced by young oncology nurses in Europe. Here, Sara Parreira, RN, MSc, from the CUF Infante Santo Hospital, Lisbon, Portugal explains how young nurses, in particular those in oncology, could benefit from increased education and support in order to progress their careers and to improve their communication skills. Ms Parreira discusses how it is important for young nurses to have their voices heard and for oncology nursing to be recognised as a speciality across Europe. This interview was recorded at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2018 Congress, in Munich, Germany.
