An expert panel of nurses will discuss the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on pediatric oncology nursing. Highlights will include discussion of the nursing specific guidance from the recent publication COVID-19 PANDEMIC: A Rapid Global Response for Children with Cancer”, interim guidelines from the Oncology Nursing Society, and the issues identified by nurses from around the world.

The Global COVID-19 Observatory and Resource Center is pleased to host COVID Conversations, a weekly live webinar to discuss difficult issues, address pressing questions, and hear the experiences of our colleagues when it comes to caring for children with cancer during this pandemic. For additional resources, discussions, and information about pediatric oncology nursing during the COVID-19 pandemic, please join the Nursing Community. The Global COVID-19 Observatory and Resource Center for Childhood Cancer is a collaboration of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and SIOP.

We are undoubtedly living through global health history and we hope this weekly forum allows us to stay connected and remember that we may not be in the same boat, but we are weathering the same storm. Together, we can continue to strive for our goal that no child should die of cancer, anywhere or at any time.
