Nurses

Updated 19 Sep 2018

Join nurses from across the UK working together to improve blood cancer patient care

The Bloodwise Nurses Network is here to provide all nurses working in haemato-oncology an opportunity to learn from each other and share best practice to improve the standards of care for blood cancer patients

  • It's a network for professional development and opportunities to share ideas with other nurses about ways of working and best practice.
  • It provides easy access to the latest research information and care available for blood cancer patients.
  • It offers ways to get more involved in relevant and effective projects which work towards improving the lives of those affected by blood cancer. 

As a member of the network you can give as much or as little as you want to fit in with your nursing commitments. This could be anything from recieving regular communication from us, to taking part in surveys or focus groups, to being involved in or leading on a particular project or programme.

If you're a nurse working in haemato-oncology and would to get involved, then join the network.

Why we're working with nurses

We recently conducted the largest blood cancer patient research project known as Patient Need, our findings from which have guided all of our future work.  One of the key needs affecting blood cancer patient experience is access to nurses, so we are very keen to work with nurses to support the workforce as best we can, which will ultimately support us to improve patient benefit.
