European Cancer Organisation


Conclusion and key recommendations

Through the RECaN project, ECCO intends to support the following characteristics of contemporary cancer nursing:

  • Cancer nurses are core members of the multi-disciplinary team;
  • Education for specialist cancer nurses (across all tumour types and phases of care) should be made available;
  • Cancer nursing should be a recognised speciality across Europe based on a mutually agreed educational curriculum;
  • Enhanced free movement of cancer nurses across Europe should
    be promoted and facilitated to help address rising demand
