EONS 2018 | Promoting nurse-led services in oncology

Matt Fowler

Matt Fowler, BScN, MSc, from the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham, UK, shares insights from the European Oncology Nurses Society (EONS) session on nurse-led cancer services, held at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2018 Congress in Munich, Germany. Mr Fowler discusses his positive experiences of working as part of a medical team, who have provided support to allow for nurses to take on advanced practises, such as non-medical prescribing and chemotherapy administration. Due to such initiatives, many clinics are now nurse-led and there are numerous programmes in place to encourage and support nurses to take on additional qualifications and roles.
