Caring for teenagers and young adults with cancer - A competence and career framework for nursing

The first national competence and career framework to support nurses caring for teenagers and young adults with cancer aged 13 to 24 was launched by Teenage Cancer Trust in July 2014. The frame work was developed by Teenage Cancer Trust Head of Nursing and Quality North, Sam Smith, with the help of a Florence Nightingale leadership scholarship. It is also endorsed by the Royal College of Nursing.
