Making Education Work Better for Patient Care



• In 2009, Striking a Balance of Care study days were held for the East Midlands and Sussex Cancer Networks. Aimed at reviewing the challenges faced across the network and exploring new models of care from around the country, these meetings stimulated internal discussions and review for the redesign of chemotherapy services.

• Over 50 European Nurses attended a workshop in Berlin, September 2009; “Advancing nursing management in ErbB2-positive breast cancer and emesis control.” The meeting was a collaboration with the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) and was supported by an unrestricted educational grant from GSK Oncology.
