Message from the ISNCC President

On behalf of the ISNCC Board of Directors, I am pleased to present you with the 2015-2016 ISNCC Annual

Report. This report outlines ISNCC’s activities over the past fiscal year, including membership, partnerships,

major initiatives and financials.

In 2015, ISNCC engaged in various international initiatives supporting our strategic plan, with a focus on

advancing and applying knowledge and influencing health policy in the area of cancer care and oncology

nursing practice. ISNCC does this work through the development and engagement of cancer nurse leaders

via our international network of professionals in the field of cancer nursing. ISNCC has continued to work to

build and sustain our stakeholder relationships and to ensure the ongoing success of these relationships in

our work internationally.

ISNCC had another excellent year. We held an extremely successful International Conference on Cancer

Nursing (ICCN) 2015 in Vancouver, Canada, and are planning ICCN 2016 in Hong Kong, China and ICCN

2017 in Anaheim, USA. We held numerous cervical cancer screening workshops in Latin America and tobacco

control workshops in Eastern Europe.

ISNCC continues to host a unique ecosystem of resources for its members. These resources include the official

journal of ISNCC, ‘Cancer Nursing’, the blog International Cancer Nursing News (ICNN), the educational module

platform ISNCC Insight and the ISNCC Community on Sosido. Further, we continued to update and develop

position statements, including the Palliative Care Position Statement and a Joint Statement with several of our

partners, on World No Tobacco Day.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the ISNCC Board of Directors and committee members, whose

tireless work continues to help maximize the role of nurses to reduce the global burden of cancer care.

We are looking forward to the continued development and evolution of ISNCC.

Thank you,

Stella Aguinaga Bialous, RN, MSc, DrPh, FAAN

ISNCC President

NATIONAL ORGANIZATION GUIDANCE

DOCUMENT

ISNCC offers a Guidance Document on How to

Establish a National Cancer Nursing Organization.

Cancer Nurses need to have their own national

organization to speak for them and raise cancer

nursing related issues at the national level. The national

organization would represent cancer nurses within

a country to inform practice, develop networks and

share experiences. Countries with limited resources

may face particular challenges when attempting to

establish a national organization. Resources can be

limited and there may be poorly developed technical

infrastructure. The imperative to establish national

cancer nursing societies in countries with limited

resources is gathering pace as the incidence of cancer

rises. These societies will be pivotal in the efforts to

prevent, control and treat cancer. The functions and

benefits of a national organization may include:

• Provide leadership and a national voice for cancer

nurses

• Development and dissemination of standards,

training and education

• Support each other and share experiences

through opportunities for networking

• Initiate research that will lead to the enhancement

of care for people with cancer

• Enable concerns from local forums to feed into

national policy and practice

• Collaborate with other societies involved in the

care of the person with cancer

• Promote nurses’ contributions to national cancer

control activities (preventing new cancers,

improving survival, alleviating human suffering)
