Aaron Begue - The James Cancer Center, Ohio, USA

Aaron Begue talks to ecancer at the 2013 SIOG meeting in Copenhagen about the methods of advanced training for geriatric oncology nurses and the SIOG and allied heath task force aimed at promoting more nurses to specialise in this field.

Oncology certified nurse practitioners are rare and each year only about 150 new nurse practitioners become qualified in oncology. Mr Begue discusses how methods used to train these practitioners are important both for those who seek to become certified in the field and those who occasionally treat cancer patients.
