Introducing UKONS Members


“The Mission of UKONS is Inspiring Cancer Nursing”


The cancer nursing community needed a change. We felt we wanted all nurses — strategic, educational, researchers and those in clinical practice — not only to come together to share, learn and influence but also to link with our colleagues in other countries to work together in our special interests.

There could not be a more appropriate time for nurses to take a greater role in driving this change. The number of nurses who will benefit from a collectivist approach is enormous, given the diversity of cancer care nowadays for our patients. As the population ages and cancer incidence rises, coupled with the variety of effective novel treatments we offer mounting, there is a great need to share expertise through education, raise political awareness and linking with other organisations.

UKONS will provide one vehicle for this. UKONS is a prominent, collective voice for cancer nursing that is based on a fully consultative and interactive membership.

Social media is one of the ways UKONS will spread the word. On this page we publish photographs that are posted along with more information on Twitter @UKONSboard. Join in the conversation!
