BAHNON’s aim is to provide a professional organisation focused on the speciality of head and neck oncology nursing. The organisations objectives are:
Raise the profile of head and neck cancer nursing nationally and internationally
Improve patient care by influencing national policy and practice
Provide a voice and support for members
Provide a professional network to share experience and expertise
Promote research and developments in head and neck cancer nursing
BAHNON exists as an organisation that cares about Head and Neck Cancer Nursing. We serve nurses and allied health professionals. We produce guidelines, a newsletter, a website, an internet discussion group, conferences and research and development projects. We link with other organisations associated with this speciality, in order to promote interdisciplinary teamwork.
BAHNON are looking to establish international links within Head and Neck Oncology Nursing. This will provide an exciting opportunity for us to directly connect with other nurses worldwide, sharing of best practice, research and the delivery of services. If you have any contacts that you would be willing to share, please contact a member of the committee.
A lot has happened this year, with changes to the committee membership roles and not forgetting the ongoing Covid19 pandemic!
Whilst the BAHNON team are committed to providing support and up-to-date advice to its members, this has been very challenging since the beginning of the year, with most of us tied up with our primary clinical roles.
What we do know is that we hope to try and update the website further with more content over the course of the year and try to figure out how we can arrange our next conference safely in 2022.
As always, you can email us for any enquires or sharing of best practice. Or request to join our Facebook page for an even easier way to network and stay in touch.
