April 3rd, 2018 marks the 15th anniversary for Oncology Nursing Day, and the theme this year is “Excellence in Oncology: Our Patients, Our Passion”. This theme highlights the excellence in Oncology Nursing across Canada while maintaining the focus on our patients. Our patients are the reason we do what we do. We are passionate about empowering oncology nurses with education and leadership skills that, in turn, will improve our patient’s outcomes and experiences.
As oncology nurses, every day you provide unwavering support, compassion and care for your patients; while also campaigning, advocating and promoting for resources to meet the challenging needs of the cancer care system. You are at the heart of cancer care, and today especially we would like to thank you.
Across Canada, it’s a day to recognize the incredible role oncology nurses play in our national healthcare system.
Cancer affects people of all genders, nationalities and age groups. Oncology nurses are on the front lines of cancer treatment, care and research.
We thank all Canadians, from coast to coast, for their roles in helping us celebrate Annual Oncology Nursing Day.
There are countless untold stories of oncology nurses profoundly impacting the lives of so many Canadian cancer patients and their families.
