ESVONC is super delighted to host the very first oncology technicians day.
Oncologists are among the first to be aware that we can't do the daily job of taking care of our patients and streamlining the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures without the help of enthousiastic, empathic and professional technicians. Cancer patients are by far the largest group of patients treated for medical reasons in vet clinics.
We are, however, also aware that there's a big gap in the training options of technicians in the different aspects of veterinary oncology.
We thought the time was right to take action with this first European symposium for veterinary oncology technicians and nurses. We have set up a program to cover a wide variety of subjects facing the vet oncology tech, but also a scientific basis to build upon in the future. We can confirm that the team of speakers instantly agreed when invited to lecture.
Furthermore, we hope that this meeting can also work as a start for a future interprofessional discussion among vet techs interested in oncology. ESVONC has always been about bringing people together and exchanging ideas. We're sure that this symposium can act in the same way.
