EORNA 2021: Winds of Change
24. december, 2019

Season’s greetings, and Happy New Year,

Many of us were able to participate in EORNA Congress 2019, which was a real success, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. The next conference will take place in Norway, Stavanger, in May 27-30, 2021. The motto for the congress is “Winds of Change” and it aims to address the changes and challenges in surgical methods due to the use of advanced technology in operating rooms. We look forward to welcoming you at EORNA 2021!

The World Health Organization (WHO) has decreed that the year 2020 will be the Year of the Nurse and Midwife (YONM), in honour of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), considered the founder of modern nursing. We are proud to be perioperative nurses and we will continue working all together to enhance perioperative nursing in Europe.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish you our best and warm wishes for the holiday season. I hope the new year brings you, family, colleagues and friends, health, peace and happiness. I look forward to hearing more from you in the special coming year.

Yours sincerely,

May Karam
EORNA President
