UKONS partnerships

Our corporate partners financially support the work of UKONS and are vitally important to us. Working with industry, we are able to support cancer nurses and therefore ultimately improve the experiences and outcomes of people affected by cancer. UKONS has collaborated with a number of industry partners on a number of projects that have yielded real time, practical tools to assist both cancer nurses and their patients.

These include:

  • A 24 hour triage rapid assessment tool and acute oncology guidelines
  • The SACT Passport and Train the Trainer events
  • A series of joint UKONS-Partner master classes

Collectively, UKONS Partnerships provide the majority of the funding for the Charity. The Partnerships also demonstrate a joint commitment from both industry and UKONS to collaborate on cancer nurse education programmes to ultimately improve patient outcomes and experiences

Some examples of joint working are are:

  • UKONS consultancy for industry funded education events
  • Industry presence at UKONS regional education events
  • The standardisation of competence assessment, e.g. in SACT and AOS services
  • Digitalisation of guidelines and learning resources
