CANO/ACIO Nursing Knowledge and Practice Framework for Cancer Care
The Nursing Knowledge and Practice Framework identifies the foundational cancer nursing knowledge that all nurses should have, regardless of work setting or level of specialization, to care for individuals with cancer along the continuum.
This Framework was developed for front line nurses, leaders, educators, and decision makers, who care for and support patients and families affected by cancer.
