I am very excited about this opportunity to share experiences and learn with colleagues from other countries. I want to use my new leadership abilities to motivate my colleagues, hospital authorities, non-governmental organizations and decision makers to implement programmes to improve the early detection, adequate diagnosis and rapid access to treatment of patients with cancer.

Knowledge exchange experiences like those facilitated by C/Can are great opportunities to learn about different models and strategies from other colleagues that we can then adapt to our own context and strengthen the role of nurse navigators in cancer care.
