I would propose to attend the 20th Annual Society for Neuro-Oncology Annual Scientific Meeting and Education Day November 19-22, 2015 - San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter, San Antonio, Texas.

This is one of the major Neuro Oncology specific annual meetings held each year which will allow me to network & strengthen relationships with other Neuro Oncology specific Clinical Nurse Consultants. As Neuro Oncology is a niche field, the opportunity for further education in Australia is limited so my ability to converge with other like-minded Nurses is essential.

The ASM is combined with a one day Education Day which is split in to two sessions, one related to Allied Health which discusses issues directly affecting brain tumour patients & their cares, issues around fatigue, return to work, changes in cognition & other quality of life aspects.
