From September 29 to October 2, 2023, the International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN2023) was held in Glasgow for four days. The theme of the conference was "Building Global Excellence in Nursing, Achieving Excellence in Cancer Care," and it was divided into four main themes and five sub-forums. Leading cancer care experts from the UK, USA, Australia, China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and other countries in Africa gathered to discuss the latest developments in cancer care.
During the conference, the Palliative Care Committee of the Chinese Nursing Association and the Palliative Care Committee of the Chinese Anti-Cancer Association donated more than 30 books in Chinese and English, including "Palliative Care: A Technical Guide for the Integrated Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer in China." These donation provided strong support for and promoted the development of global palliative care.
Through this international Cancer Nursing Conference, the influence of the Palliative Care Committee of the Chinese Nursing Association has been further enhanced. We expect that palliative scholars from around the world will actively participate in the practice and research of palliative care, contributing to the further development of palliative care in our country.
