8th EORNA Congress – The Colossus of Perioperative Nursing – Greece 2017

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of the organ­is­ing com­mit­tee, it is a great plea­sure to invite you to attend the 8th Con­gress of the Euro­pean Oper­at­ing Room Nurses Asso­ci­a­tion (EORNA). The con­gress will be held in Rhodes island – Greece on May 4-​7th, 2017 at the Rodos Palace Hotel. It will be a great moment bring­ing together all com­mit­ted nurses, lead­ers and peri­op­er­a­tive professionals.

    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 everyone’s strengths, the key in ensur­ing qual­ity peri­op­er­a­tive care.
