Author on Call

The function of the “Author on Call” blog is to allow our readers and authors to interact with each other in a unique way. A few select authors will be chosen to share on the blog aspects of their papers that were especially meaningful to them personally or points that may not have made it into their published report. Readers will then have the opportunity to provide comments and questions, to which the authors will respond.

At times, as seen in our first entry, we will also post separate entries to the blog on various special topics that we feel would be informational or that we welcome your feedback on.

International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC) - 38:5 September/October Blog Update
ISNCC held a successful Member Council Meeting, Chaired by Stella Bialous, ISNCC President, at the International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN) on July 10, 2015 at Westin Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. The ISNCC Member Council is compiled of representatives from the ISNCC Full Membership (national oncology nursing societies). The 2015 Member Council Meeting agenda included discussions on the potential to develop a Leadership Academy/Global Leadership Institute, the need to develop strategies to engage in activities in partnership with other international organizations, and the potential to develop a communications plan for international leaders. The minutes and results of the 2015 Member Council meeting will be distributed to the stakeholders in the international cancer nursing community via the ISNCC membership in September/October 2015. We are looking forward to moving forward on the actions stemming from this exciting discussion!
