We look forward to meeting, learning and sharing with Emergency Nurses from around the world. We have designed a program intended to challenge, inspire, generate questions, translate knowledge and think creatively, unimpeded by conventional constraints. We appreciate that what we do, we do for our patients and their families. It is our responsibility to ensure they have access to the best available nursing care, informed by evidence, ethics, empathy and care. We need to ensure that our colleagues have the ability and opportunity to provide the care we all want to give. This program aims to address the intellectual, emotional and social needs of our emergency nursing workforce, all while having a little fun. As Dr Seuss so aptly says “The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
We look forward to celebrating and enhancing our amazing profession with you at the 15thInternational Conference for Emergency Nursing.
