The ISNCC Board of Directors and its Conference Management Committee are thrilled to announce the next International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN 2020) to be held March 29th through April 1st, 2020 at Imperial College, London, UK! The theme for the conference is “Innovation and Inspiration: Celebrating the Global Impact of Oncology Nurses.” This is a most appropriate theme as 2020 has been designated as “The Year of the Nurse” by the World Health Organization. Additionally, 2020 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, so we will have plenty to celebrate!

The conference will focus on all aspects of cancer nursing and our ability to impact patients, families, communities and nations through clinical practice, education, health policy, leadership, and research. Through scholarly discourse, networking and collaboration among oncology nursing educators, practitioners, researchers, and leaders from across the globe, we will showcase the remarkable work and dedication of nurses involved in cancer care.

The conference offers a wide variety of educational opportunities including pre-conference programs, plenary speakers, oral presentations, instructional sessions, and poster sessions as well as social and cultural events to educate and celebrate nurses. A special highlight will be the Robert Tiffany Award keynote address sponsored by the Royal Marsden Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

ICCN 2020 will be ISNCC’s 23rd conference! It is especially exciting to be holding it in London, the birthplace of ISNCC. Imperial College will be an exceptional venue for our meeting. Located near Hyde Park and adjacent to museums, cultural sites, great restaurants, and shopping, it provides multiple modern meeting rooms and wonderful spots for networking and interacting with colleagues, sponsors and exhibitors. Pre-conference sessions will be held minutes away from Imperial College at the Royal Marsden. Tours of this remarkable facility are being arranged for those who are interested.
