The annual UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) Conference 2023 was held at Newport this year and the work of some of our nurses, along with other colleagues, was recognised.

We had a record 11 posters accepted and showcased at the conference and Hannah Churchill was chosen to present her work on the Digital SACT Passport.

The theme of this year's conference was Let's Integrate Cancer Care and it was the first time it was held in Wales.

It was also the highest attended conference with a record number of poster acceptances.

Hannah Russon, Lead of the Velindre Oncology Academy Project, said: "We were very proud that the cancer service had such great representation at the conference and was able to showcase all the fantastic projects that have been undertaken by some of our nurses, alongside other members of the MDT and neighbouring UHBs.

"We were also thrilled that Hannah Churchill (pictured left) was selected to present her work on the UKONS Digital Passport and Rhianydd Jones facilitated a lively discussion on the evolution of SACT from IV to SC.

"As a UKONS board member, Dr Rosie Roberts chaired breakout sessions but also represented Velindre by also having a poster accepted. All posters and presentation were very well received by other delegates at the conference and we were very proudly waving the flag for Velindre."
