Holistic prostate cancer care

Registration for this course is closed.

The 4th Course of the European School of Urology Nursing on Holistic prostate cancer care took place on 14-15 September 2018 in Krakow, Poland.

The 4th ESUN Course in Krakow, 14-15 September 2018, combined all the best features of an educational event – interaction, group work, latest updates and established evidence-based recommendations. We invited renowned experts in the field, from a theoretical and practical point of view, who trained with the purpose to help nurses spread the latest insights in the field.
