Abstract: (1) Background: Most common hereditary cancers in Europe have been associated with lifestyle behaviors, and people affected are lacking follow up care. However, access to education programmes to increase knowledge on cancer and genetics and promote healthy lifestyle behaviors in people at high risk of cancer is scarce. This affects the quality of care of people with a hereditary risk of cancer. This study aimed to reach a multidisciplinary consensus on topics and competencies and competencies that cancer nurses need in relation to cancer, genetics, and health promotion. (2) Methods: A two-round online Delphi study was undertaken. Experts in cancer and genetics were asked to assess the relevance of eighteen items and to suggest additional terms. Consensus was defined as an overall agreement of at least 75%. (3) Results: A total of 74 multiprofessional experts from all around the world participated in this study including healthcare professionals working in genetics (39%), researchers in cancer and genetics (31%) and healthcare professionals with cancer patients (30%). Thirteen additional items were proposed. A total of thirty-one items reached consensus. (4) Conclusions: This multidisciplinary consensus study provide the essential elements to build an educational programme to increase cancer nurses' skills to support the complex care of people living with a higher risk of cancer including addressing lifestyle behaviors. All professionals highlighted the importance of cancer nurses increasing their skills in cancer and genetics.
