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.
