The International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN) 2016 was held in Hong Kong China from September 4-7, 2016. This is the second ICCN which was held in Asia, since after the ICCN 2008 in Singapore. The conference theme was ‘Embracing globalization through leadership and partnership in cancer care’. More than 200 Asian delegates actively participated in this conference via oral and poster presentations.
It is a great pleasure for Asian Oncology Nursing Society (AONS) to work hand-in-hand with International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC) on advancing knowledge and practice in cancer care via ICCN2016 and pre-conference workshop. An AONS-ISNCC International partner joint session was hosted to discuss the roles and challenges of nursing leadership in multidisciplinary cancer care. Three oncology nursing scholars from three different Asian countries were invited to be plenary speakers. Dr Kyunghee Lim (South Korea) highlighted her presentation on how nursing leadership to effect policy change for cancer care; Dr Meera Achreker (India) stressed the importance of nursing leadership in integrating clinical nurse specialist in cancer care in India; Prof Carman Chan (Hong Kong China) focused her presentation on roles of oncology nurses on leading multidisciplinary cancer and palliative care research. Ms Tomoko Izawa from Japan was also invited to be a speaker of preconference workshop ‘Global issues of survivorship’. She shared her views of cultural issues of survivorship care in Asia.
ISNCC is a wonderful partner to work with as we share same objectives of developing and promoting oncology nursing. As an international organization, ISNCC provides a good platform to oncology nurses worldwide to gather together and share their knowledge and experience so as to provide the best care to cancer patients. We appreciate ISNCC uses mutual recognition and culturally sensitive approaches to work collaboratively with other regional oncology nursing associations. We have a strong desire to continue work closely with ISNCC on various educational and research activities and on communication with each other about strategies to maximize the influence of nursing to reduce the global burden of cancer.
