Would you like to write for Cancer Nursing Practice?

Cancer Nursing Practice is the only practice-based journal in the UK that covers all aspects of nursing adults and children with cancer.

It publishes original research, updates in policy or in practice guidelines in the field of cancer care, descriptions of practice, literature reviews, case studies, opinion articles and commissioned book reviews.

It also publishes continuing professional development articles to inform, support and educate nurses working in this field of practice, and to help contributors and their readers prepare for revalidation.

If you have an idea for an article or how to develop the journal online or in print, the editorial team wants to hear from you. We have a particular focus on the following areas:

  • Pain management
  • End of life care
  • Immunotherapy
  • Research
  • Patient experience
  • Children's care
  • Advanced practice
  • Clinical nurse specialist roles
  • Living with and beyond cancer
  • Management of treatment side effects
