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.

 

2020, ‘International Year of the Nurse and Midwife’ was an extraordinary year for every nurse across the world and 2021 continues to be so. The COVID-19 pandemic has put nursing in the spotlight and the public better understands the work nurses do and the valuable contribution they make to healthcare.
