UKONS 2017 | An E-learning tool for hematology-oncology nurses

A key finding of a recent Bloodwise study into the specific needs of hematological cancer patients highlighted the importance of access to a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS). However, with busy wards and high staff turnovers in certain locations, the availability of these nurses is stretched. In this interview, Lena Elkman of Bloodwise, London, UK, discusses a new E-learning tool for the training of hematology-oncology nurses, emphasizing the benefits that this will have for both nurses and the patients that they care for. This video was recorded at the UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) Annual Conference 2017 in Harrogate, UK.
