UKONS Champions

UKONS is committed to facilitating its educational and developmental aims through local, regional as well as national events.

We have developed a strong network of active UKONS Champions to provide a link between the UKONS Board and its corporate partner organisations through a series of regional educational events.

UKONS Champions play key roles in:

  • Raising awareness of UKONS within their region
  • Assisting and promoting cancer nurses locally
  • Maintaining a dialogue with local industry representatives and other partners
  • Facilitating at local events
  • Helping with grants/external conference applications/research projects
  • Establishing aims and needs of local cancer nurses and assisting them in achieving these
  • Liaising with the local/regional UKONS Board member 
  • Contributing to the UKONS newsletter with news of their region
  • UKONS Annual Conference and other UKONS events

The Young/Early Career Cancer Nurse is a sub-group of the UKONS Champions, the primary aim being to support and develop young and early career cancer nurses in the UK, but with the group continuing to link to the EONS Young Cancer Nurses (YCN).  The three representatives, Constance Rewell, Beth Maynard and Jane Ewang are co-opted members of the Board and are invited to UKONS Board meetings.
