Abstract 2779


Research in cancer nursing is pivotal for patients, their families and for the nursing profession. Cancer nurses have to deliver good quality care during the whole trajectory from pre-diagnosis to treatment, rehabilitation and palliation. However, the numbers of Danish nursing researchers within the cancer discipline are small and they work somewhat isolated all over Denmark. The researchers would benefit from forming a stronger network and to collaborate across the country.


The network was established during a snowball effect and from mouth to mouth. Members invited are nurses with a PhD from all over Denmark, researching within different areas of the cancer discipline. The network is organized with a steering committee consisting of three members representing three of the five Danish regions.


In October 2016 the Danish Cancer Nursing Research Network was born. At the moment 31 Danish nursing researchers are affiliated to the network, and is growing. The aim of the network is to: ○ Draw national and international attention to nursing research to the benefit of cancer patients and their families ○ To facilitate collaboration in cancer research among members ○ To exert influence on a political level to promote developments in healthcare and to raise attention to the importance of nursing research The network has during 1.5 years arranged four successful meetings and a master class for PhD student, and is beginning to include PhD students. The network also aims to connect and collaborate with international nurse researchers. We have flashed our existence and call for collaboration through EONS' newsletter February 2018.


The Danish Cancer Nursing Research Network is a new but already strong and expanding organization which will influence Danish cancer nursing on different levels.
