UKONS strives to be the voice of cancer nursing across the four nations and so we are thrilled to be based in Belfast in 2022. Belfast is a vibrant city with a character and sense of style all of its own and we are particularly pleased to be on the doorstep of our UKONS members from Northern Ireland for this event.

The main theme of this year’s conference is ‘Cancer Care in the Digital Age’ and we are tackling head-on some of the big challenges facing oncology nursing as we recover from the pandemic and adjust to new ways of working whilst maintaining quality of care for our patients. This is also reflected in our poster themes for this year which are ‘Supportive Cancer Care in the Digital Age’ ‘Communicating with Patients in Modern cancer care’ and ‘The Future of Acute Cancer Care’. The posters are a personal highlight of every UKONS conference and represent the best of what our members can achieve. The conference is a brilliant and supportive environment in which to present posters and we are looking forward to seeing your work, so please submit a poster, particularly if you have not done so before.
