Abstract 2847


During the last twenty years, adolescents and young adults with cancer have gained increased attention in healthcare. The body of knowledge is growing accordingly. Nurses who have led the way amongst the now widening circle of professionals engaged in providing specialist care for young people with cancer are now ready to describe their contributions within education, clinical nursing, rehabilitation, research and leadership.


To provide healthcare professionals with knowledge about the distinct developments made within AYA cancer nursing internationally a book entitled Nursing Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer. Developing knowledge, competence and best practice is under production.

The book is based on international collaboration between the publisher Springer, the two editors and an authorship of nurses with thorough knowledge and expertise in AYA cancer care from the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Ireland, Norway, Denmark and England.


The book will be published by Springer in 2018. It contains chapters describing 1) The history of the speciality and AYA nursing competence development, 2) Approaches, Interventions and Innovations in AYA cancer nursing and 3) Aspects and challenges for future AYA cancer nursing.


The authors offer insights into the development of AYA cancer care; why it matters; how it should be delivered; and how it might be done better – and with recognition of the unique needs and wants of each young person at the centre of it all.
