5 welcome MESSAGE Dear Collegues in Cancer Nursing On behalf of the Board of Directors of the International Society of Nurses in Cancer Care (ISNCC), I welcome you to the 16th International Conference on Cancer Nursing (ICCN), the premier international educational opportunity for cancer nurses. The theme for the 16th ICCN is "Enhancing Knowledge, Promoting Quality". Enhancing knowledge represents the wonderful opportunity we have to enhance our knowledge of professional educational topics including symptom management, quality of life, patient safety, palliative care, pediatric and elderly cancer patient care. Promoting quality reminds us to take time to reflect on the essential role of cancer nurses in the quality of care for patients, families and communities living with the burden of cancer. WELCOME MESSAGES I am also delighted to welcome you to the vibrant city of Atlanta, Georgia; a city encompassing the romance of the Old South with the bustling commerce of the 21st century. ISNCC is honored to have the opportunity to share the 2010 conference host city with the National Headquarters and South Atlantic Division offices of the American Cancer Society. We hope that you are able to participate in the conference Gala Evening at the American Cancer Society and take this fantastic opportunity to experience the location of the largest voluntary health organization in the United States and the world s leading cancer control organization. The ICCN is a wonderful opportunity to reinforce, rekindle and network with other cancer nurses from around the world by exchanging ideas and experiences, sharing new learnings, renewing old friendships, and working in collaboration to overcome the immense challenges and demands we face in caring for cancer patients everywhere. When international cancer nurses gather together the atmosphere is electric. I invite you to renew in the inspiration and comradeship that the ICCN brings, and be enriched with a newfound energy and motivation to continue the commitment to oncology nursing, patients and colleagues.
