The distribution of global cancer nursing education resources is unbalanced. There are insufficient cancer textbooks in low and middle-income countries where cancer nurses, educators, and researchers do not get adequate access to adequate professional books.
To support resource sharing and enhance cancer nursing development in underdeveloped areas, the ISNCC Communications Committee will launch the 3rd book donation activity at ICCN 2020. This activity was greatly supported by all the ISNCC members and participants at ICCN 2017-2018 with 76 textbooks in English and 31 textbooks in Chinese donated to 58 nurses from low resource areas. This enhanced the internal and external communication of ISNCC as well as promoting the sharing of educational resources.
We invite all ICCN 2020 delegates to bring books to donate or exchange.
The textbook donations criteria will be as follows:
- Published within the last 10 years
- Published by an authorized publishing company
- Content range:
- Cancer nursing theories
- Clinical technologies and practices on cancer nursing
- Research methods in cancer nursing
- Any text related to cancer nursing
A table will be set up at ICCN and staffed by Communications Committee Members. Please ensure the textbooks you bring to ICCN follow the textbook donations criteria.
You are welcome to bring your books to the table and leave your contact information including email address. A book donation certificate will be sent to the donators.
We are looking forward to your participation!
