GPON’s mission is to provide a global forum for the recognition of the specialty of oncology nursing, to bridge the gap of disparities in cancer care and to share oncology nurses’ experiences, challenges and successes.
GPON’s vision is to achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all, in the context of cancer care (SDG 3.8).
The Global Power of Oncology Nursing (GPON) conference is held annually as part of London Global Cancer Week, showcasing the nursing contribution to tackling the global burden of cancer. Nurses share their stories, engage in debates, and celebrate their achievements with colleagues from around the world. Most nurse presenters live and work in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) and focus on solutions to improve cancer care in a world where universal health coverage is far from a reality. Nurses can and do make a huge impact on the burden of cancer, often being the first and only point of care in their communities. However, there is a huge shortage of trained oncology nursing workforce, affecting both the work nurses can do and patient care.

PAXMAN began with one family’s battle against cancer. Sue Paxman was diagnosed with breast cancer and while she was receiving chemotherapy, started to lose her hair.
Now the global expert in preventing chemotherapy-induced alopecia (CIA), PAXMAN address this unmet need in side effect management. Manufacturing and suppling the world leading Paxman Scalp Cooling System (PSCS), PAXMAN has an 80% share of the global scalp-cooling market, with over 4,000 systems installed across 63 countries and continues to conduct research and clinical trials to improve the technology.
CIA is widely recognised as one of the most traumatic side effects associated with chemotherapy treatment; it can have a detrimental impact on a patient’s sense of identity, quality of life and can lead to social isolation.
FDA approved, Scalp Cooling is proven to be efficacious, tolerable and safe by multiple robust studies conducted all over the world. A standard of care at some of the world’s most trusted medical institutions, the treatment is listed on multiple cancer care guidelines and is clinically proven to encourage faster hair regrowth.
In addition, a medical compression and cooling device is under development to prevent chemotherapy-induced nerve damage (CIPN) in hands and feet.
