NURSICON2019 – “Excellence in Oncology Nursing” Enriching Life : A Comprehensive Approach

With great pride and honor, the Department of Nursing at Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre (RGCI&RC) Delhi, announces a two day National Nursing Conference to be held on 10th and 11th January 2019 at Hotel Crowne Plaza, Rohini, Delhi – 85.

The Theme of the program is: “Excellence in Oncology Nursing”.. Enriching Life: A Comprehensive Approach”

In the past, the major cancer treatment was surgery, and the role of the nurse was limited to inpatient care of the surgical patient. As chemotherapy and radiation therapy evolved as treatment modalities, nurses looked for opportunities to contribute to cancer care.

Last two decades have seen a revolution in the evolution of newer techniques in the area of cancer diagnosis, treatment and oncology nursing. Cancer survival rates have improved and nursing has experienced a shift that acknowledged the importance of professionalism in nursing. Over the years the practice of oncology nursing has attained the role of direct caregiver, educator, consultant, administrator, and researcher. Oncology nursing extends to all healthcare delivery settings from prevention, screening, treatment to palliation.

In this background, Department of Nursing of RGCI & RC has planned the Academic Feast for Nursing Fraternity. We cordially invite you to participate in this event and make the most use of the vast knowledge and experience of the learned faculty. This is an opportunity for all nursing colleagues as well as nursing trainees to update themselves.
