What is a Specialist Practice Networks? Specialist Practice Networks, also known as SPN's, are networks of CNSA members who work in specialty areas or have a common interest, such as radiation therapy or gynaeoncology. All members of CNSA are eligible to belong to an SPN.
What SPN's do? The purpose of SPN's is to:
- provide a forum for professional networking and collaboration
- provide opportunities for educational and research activities
- act as a point of reference for nursing practice issues
- develop guidelines for specialty areas of cancer nursing practice; and
- establish processes for peer review of evidenced-based practice.
SPN's are intended to help nurses in speciality areas network with each other. Information on SPN's and SPN activities is available through the CNSA newsletter. In addition, abstracts for specialty education sessions are welcome for CNSA Annual Congress.
SPN activities are coordinated through the National Executive. The role of the SPN Coordinator is to liaise with SPN Representatives and facilitate SPN communication and activities.
