Oncology Nursing Society, 41st National Congress - Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lectureship

Explore the psychosocial challenges faced by oncology nurses, arguing in the end that joy in the work can be restorative (in conjunction with great colleagues, time for self care, a supportive administration, and the ability to reflect).
