Conference Scholarship Supporters

The International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC) would like to acknowledge our conference scholarship supporters for their generous support to nurses from low resource countries who are travelling to the 18th International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN).  These scholarships were chosen by the ISNCC Awards Committee via competition.

Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the UK’s leading cancer charities. Macmillan provides support to patients, carers, family and friends from diagnosis throughout the cancer journey. As well as helping with the medical needs of people affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care.

Macmillan funds and provides a range of services including Macmillan professionals, local information and support centres, cancer support groups, benefits advisers and cancer support specialists, and we can help with practical, medical, financial and emotional support.

Over two million people in the UK are living with or beyond cancer, and this figure is expected to rise to four million by 2030. Macmillan Cancer Support's goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer in the UK, now and in the future.


The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the world’s most respected centers devoted exclusively to cancer patient care, research, education and prevention. It is located in central Houston on the Texas Medical Center campus.

MD Anderson was created in 1941 as part of The University of Texas System. The institution is one of the nation’s original three comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Act of 1971 and is one of 41 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers today.

U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” survey ranked MD Anderson as the top hospital in the nation for cancer care in 2013. It has achieved this highest ranking 10 times in the past 12 years and has ranked as one of the top two hospitals for cancer care since the magazine began its annual survey in 1990.

The End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) project, which started in 2000, is a national education initiative to improve palliative care. The project provides undergraduate and graduate nursing faculty, CE providers, staff development educators, specialty nurses in pediatrics, oncology, critical care and geriatrics, and other nurses with palliative care education, so they can teach this essential information to nursing students and practicing nurses. To date, over 17,500 nurses and other healthcare professionals, representing all 50 US states, plus 78 international countries have received ELNEC training. The ELNEC project is administered by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), Washington, DC and the City of Hope, Los Angeles, CA.
