Oncology nurses win recognition from across the pond

  • Comment

Cancer nurses working at University College London Hospital have been praised for their work by a prominent US nursing academic.

Professor Gail Mallory, research director of the US Oncology Nursing Society, visited the hospital last month to learn how UK nurses were implementing research into everyday practice. Around 40 research projects are being undertaken at UCLH, most of which are nurse led.

‘There are some really exciting things that oncology nurses are doing here and I have got lots of ideas on how we can collaborate,’ said professor Mallory.

Alison Leary, UCLH lead for cancer nursing research and Macmillan senior lecturer, added: ‘It was a real honour to have a visitor of professor Mallory’s standing come visit – it was wonderful to exchange ideas.

‘Nurses play a vital role in caring and managing patients with cancer,’ she said. ‘Our team of nurse researchers use the best available evidence to provide the best care for cancer patients.’
