UKONS Members Interest Groups (MIGs) are set up by members for members.
These seven specialised groups bring together practicing cancer nurses (both face-to-face and virtually) to answer queries, share experiences and develop knowledge and skills. They also help to deliver many of the strategic aims and objectives of the organisation.
Members can join as many of the seven MIG groups they choose.
