AbstractThis cross-sectional study is the first to investigate the way in which the workplace environment influences nurses' participation in continuing professional development (CPD) in the context of cancer care. The study identified that factors positively associated with participation in CPD include empowering structures, such as access to information, resources, support, and healthy work environments. The study also identified that participation in CPD was associated with greater self-perceived competence in their practice. These findings highlight the importance of improving workplace structures to enable quality nursing care.
