The International Society for Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC) invites you to submit a late-breaking abstract for presentation at the 18th International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN) "Strengthening Leadership, Unity and Compassion in Cancer Care”.  This is a fantastic opportunity to present to oncology nurses from around the world, and accepted late-breaking abstract presenters will also be guaranteed the early registration rate!

The deadline to submit a late breaking abstract was May 25, 2014 at 3:00 AM ET.

Abstracts will be selected based on the categories listed below:

  1. Administration/Leadership Development: issues, trends in management and leadership
  2. Clinical/Evidence-Based Practice: issues, trends in care of cancer patients/ caregivers, nursing-sensitive patient outcomes, and/or best evidence with nursing clinical practice
  3. Education: issues, educational programs (may be based in service or academia and patient or nurse focused)
  4. Research: in progress or completed nursing research studies (only completed research is eligible for podium presentation)

This year’s Scientific Planning Committee (SPC) encourages participants to consider abstracts reflecting the concepts of compassion, humanization and diversity to address disparities in cancer care worldwide. The Committee would also value abstracts that consider the caregiver as well as the burden of caregiving.
