Conference 2017: Cancer Nursing Under Construction
11-13 May 2017, Christchurch, New Zealand
The conference theme 'Cancer Nursing Under Construction' is a reflection of what is happening in
Christchurch after the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.
Canterbury is focused on improvisation, rejuvenation and innovation to rebuild the environment and improve the wellbeing of Cantabrians.
Cancer Nursing within New Zealand is developing its own identity and evolving as a specialty.
Cancer nurses are influenced by improvisation, rejuvenation and innovation in research, clinical
practice and developing technologies to provide high standards of care to people living with cancer.
The 'Cancer Nursing Under Construction' conference offers a variety of sessions with the aim of
providing you, as a health professional involved in care of people living with cancer, tools to fill your
cancer care toolbox. Delegates will be enriched with novice to expert classes, plenaries and
concurrent speakers through education, research, technology, community and wellness topics. The
conference will enable delegates to explore their cancer knowledge, strengthen clinical skills and
resources for the future development of cancer care in New Zealand.
