What Does Learning Look Like at Connections?
You’re someone who wants to learn in as many ways as possible, and conferences are no exception. Check out the diverse opportunities built into your Connections schedule.
Podium sessions. These abstract-based sessions are right at the core of Connections, pairing researchers and clinicians to present on the most current topics in oncology nursing.
Poster displays. Meet clinicians and researchers from across the nation and globe during Sunday’s poster session. For every 17 displays you soak in, you’ll earn 0.5 contact hours. If you visit all 85 posters offering CNE, you’ll earn a total of 2.5 contact hours.
Roundtable discussions. Sit down to network and talk openly at one of four roundtables in the learning hall, each of them led by a nurse scientist and clinician team. Roundtables will address four priority concerns in oncology nursing practice: fatigue, neuropathy, cognitive impairment, and adherence to symptom management therapies.
Special Interest Group meetings. Take an in-depth, up-close conference experience one step further during an ONS Special Interest Group meeting, where you’ll connect with peers from a given specialty or on a specific oncology nursing topic.
Satellite symposia. Hear about new industry solutions to cancer treatment and symptom management issues over breakfast. Sign up to save your seat when you arrive at Connections.
Ancillary events. Hear about new industry solutions on cancer treatment and symptom management issues over dinner. Sign up to save your seat when you arrive at Connections.
