National Colorectal Cancer Nurses Network (NCCNN) Conference 2012
The day was very well evaluated and the delegates indicated that they particularly valued the opportunityto network with other colleagues and share experiences.
The National Colorectal Cancer Nurses Network was established in 1997 and is available free of charge to all nurses specialising in Colorectal Cancer Nursing. We have an annual network meeting with an aim to update network members about specific issues in current colorectal cancer nursing practice. These meetings complement the existing coloproctology conferences/ educational events on offer, remaining focused purely on colorectal cancer nursing. The meetings are informative yet informal, allowing for discussion about topical issues and opportunity for networking. The last two years, these meetings have kindly been supported by Beating Bowel Cancer, who host a page for us on their website at www.beatingbowelcancer.org/health-professionals
The network helps to create and maintain our unique but also collective identity. It is hoped that members will collaborate and contribute to projects and policy/practice developments initiated within the speciality thereby developing our knowledge base and raising the profile of colorectal cancer nursing.
