Developing a joint CNS role across a cancer unit and centre
Heather Pratt Lead Macmillan clinical nurse specialist, Gynaecological Oncology, University College Hospital, London
The role of the specialist nurse may differ between a cancer unit and a cancer centre – particularly if a sitespecific cancer service within the cancer network has been centralised to a cancer centre. This paper describes the development of a gynaecological oncology clinical nurse specialist service across a cancer network, and highlights the advantages of the chosen practice model.
