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.

Support Needed for ICCN 2020 Scholarships

The International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care is pleased to announce the next International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN) to be held from 29 March – 1 April, 2020 in London, United Kingdom. The theme for ICCN 2020 is Innovation and Inspiration: Celebrating the Global Impact of Oncology Nurses.


Conference scholarships are a vital part of ISNCC’s work in supporting capacity building in cancer nursing around the world. The conference scholarship program has been established to facilitate the dissemination of cancer nursing knowledge to and by nurses in underserved populations – and thereby build capacity in these locations. Scholarship recipients will share their experiences and newly acquired knowledge with colleagues following attendance at the ICCN.


The ISNCC Conference Scholarships will be awarded to nurses from Low- and Middle-income countries or regions working with underserved population groups throughout the world to offset the costs associated with attending ICCN.


These scholarships will be chosen by the ISNCC Nominations and Awards Committee via competition. The scholarship supports registration and/or travel and accommodation for the conference. Following the conference, scholarship recipients will write a review of their attendance which will be published in the post-conference newsletter, together with recognition of all scholarship supporters.


ISNCC requests your assistance by providing support towards a conference scholarship for the ICCN 2020. Any level of support is greatly appreciated. Your conference scholarship support may be recognized on the ICCN 2020 website and program.
