Call for Abstracts & Registration is OPEN! UKONS Virtual Conference 2020


The UKONS conference 2020 was scheduled to run in Belfast on 20-21st November. As you will now know we have had to make the decision to switch this conference to an ‘On-line’ Virtual Conference. The conference will still be packed with excellent content with one of the most important being poster presentations from UK Oncology Nurses. The ‘on-line’ format does offer considerable advantages and we anticipate that the poster submission will be more straightforward, and attendance will be very much more affordable without the need for travel and accommodation. With this in mind we urge all our members to submit posters for this conference, particularly as we have improved the prizes! Keep your diary clear for 19th, 20th and 21st of November and browse the details below.

The theme of the conference is ‘Nursing at the core of cancer care’ and the abstracts are to be submitted in one of the following headings with an additional category being added to reflect the excellent work of oncology nurses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Evolving roles in the changing workforce
  • Clinical leadership in cancer care
  • Navigating professional development 
  • The Cancer Nursing response to the COVID-19 pandemic

Oral presentations and/or posters will be accepted that report original work relating to innovation to improve cancer patient experience and outcomes. The presenter should be involved in the original work. Improved prizes will be awarded for the top three poster presentations. The author(s) should submit an abstract to Media1 Productions by 5pm on Friday 4 September 2020. Full details and instructions can be found HERE.
