8th EORNA Congress 2017 - The colossus of perioperative nursing

Date:

4 - 7 May 2017

Location:
Rhodes

 

The scientific program will offer delegates a wide range of innovative and interesting topics, with oral presentations, poster sessions and workshops. This congress will be an excellent opportunity to enhance and strengthen your knowledge for improving perioperative care. During this congress you will also share knowledge and experience with colleagues from over 40 countries.

The congress theme is: The Colossus of perioperative nursing. If you describe someone as a colossus, you mean that he is extremely important and great in ability. We, perioperative nurses, are the colossus; to provide the best, the more secure perioperative care to the patient.

The Colossus of Rhodes was a symbol of peace and unity for the people who were living in the beautiful Mediterranean island of Rhodes. In perioperative nursing practice, we do not work alone, but as a team. In a united team, we communicate, we have common goals. Teamwork is more than just working together, it is bringing out the best of everyones strengths, the key in ensuring quality perioperative care.

So join us in Rhodes island, Greece. We look forward to seeing you there!
