Introduction to The Irish Breast Care Nurses Group (IBCNG)

The importance of the role of the nurse in the delivery of an integrated and seamless service for women undergoing treatment for breast cancer cannot be stressed enough. For the information needs, the emotional support, and the quality of life of women with breast cancer, the breast care nurse is the central point of contact. The Irish Breast Care Nurses Group (IBCNG) strive to ensure that nurses, whether specialised or general, provide the highest standards of care to these women, while being dedicated to the promotion of breast care nursing as a specialty. We endeavour to promote excellence in breast care nursing by sharing knowledge, research, and supporting other nurses working in the specialty.
