ISNCC Corporate Partnership

ISNCC has a consistent and successful record of international activities that impact communities by advancing the knowledge and skills of cancer nurses. We have accomplished this through partnerships with corporations as well as other cancer organizations.

A sample of these activities includes the following:

  • International tobacco cessation workshops and online programming that educates up to 1,000 nurses per month
  • International symptom management program that supports practice change and improves quality of care through the development of worldwide standards
  • International chemotherapy survey development and distribution to five countries in Latin America and Asia
  • Cultural adaptation and translation of cancer materials ensuring education is available irrespective of where the nurse practices, currently reaching thousands of nurses worldwide
  • International breast cancer train-the-trainer workshops, reaching worldwide nurses with limited experience in this area to support their learning and allow them to train others in their home countries, including China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Zambia
  • International Conferences on Cancer Nursing (ICCN), hosting up to 1000 nurses at each conference
  • International nursing leadership program and research workshops, reaching up to 1000 nursing leaders worldwide
  • International palliative care curriculum to reach nurses without access to palliative care programs in their countries, taught to over 5,000 nurses worldwide
  • Quarterly publication of the International Cancer Nursing Newsletter (ICNN), accessed by over 10,000 nurses worldwide
  • International policies and position statements on a range of topics critical to cancer control, including pain, cervical screening and tobacco, accessed by over 10,000 nurses worldwide

Greta Cummings, RN, PhD, ISNCC Immediate Past President, has noted that "The potential for impact from our educational programs is immense. Our programs prepare nurses to make a real difference in their home countries. One nurse from Brazil who participated in the Breast Cancer Train the Trainer Program in returned home and educated over 900 nurses in only one year!"

ISNCC invites corporations to fund, promote, or co-develop initiatives that support specific goals that advance cancer nursing and patient care worldwide. Cancer nurses globally need access to evidence-based practice, continuing education and opportunities to advance their knowledge and clinical practice.
