Good Practice Guide

The purpose of this guide is to provide a user friendly, informative guide for all lung cancer nurses and their colleagues.

The majority of the examples of good practice have been provided by members of Lung Cancer Nursing UK. The Good Practice Guide published by LCNUK is now an established guide to excellent practice and could be extended to be a guide for all tumour sites and other CNS roles in the NHS as examples of developing good practice. A great deal of the work highlighted in these Good Practice Guides is transferable and LCNUK are keen to share their good practice and encourage other CNS’s working to promote good practice to share their ideas.
