Developing Oncology Partnerships Around the World
By 2035, it’s expected that 22 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed annually around the world. The global burden of cancer care and treatment is something that affects all nations and cultures. Through collaboration, understanding, and a dedication to forging new relationships, oncology professionals from around the world are coming together to fight for their patients and colleagues on February 4, 2017, for World Cancer Day.
ONS Member Meneses Named UAB’s 2016 Distinguished Faculty Lecturer
After more than 40 years as an oncology educator, researcher, and nurse, ONS member Karen Meneses, PhD, RN, FAAN, has been named the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s (UAB’s) 2016 Distinguished Faculty Lecturer. This is the highest honor given at the university, and Meneses is only the second nurse from UAB’s school of nursing to ever receive the honor.
Embrace Your Uniqueness
Recognizing your unique contribution to oncology nursing is an important part of self-care. Identifying personal strengths, however, can be challenging because we see ourselves from the inside out. Self-depreciating thoughts about not measuring up to our own or others’ expectations are part of our subjective view (Wittman, Kolling, Faber, Scholl, Nelissen, & Rushworth, 2016).
