At every NOBOS Congress, there is a "Round table discussion" session, a very informal, interactive session where paediatric oncology/haematology nurses share experiences and network with other colleagues.

There are five different round table discussion groups:

  • Late effects
  • Nutrition
  • Pain
  • Palliation
  • Isolation

If you have anything you would like to share with the group from your own practice you can bring copies of procedures or clinical guidelines. Participants in the roundtable sessions will be asked to have their e-mail address on the NOBOS website so that others who didn’t have the opportunity to come to the conference can contact you with questions about the specific topic.
