Nurse Association Working Group
“ Last year we reached an important milestone by having a full- day nurse programme at the EADV Congress. In the first Nurse Day we facilitated a programme that combined lectures and workshops bringing together dermatologists and nurses. The NAWG also ventured to create and implement a first Nurse Fostering Course, scheduled for 2020. All these new experiences and opportunities inspire and energise me. Bringing in new ideas from conferences and interprofessional networking boosts teamwork; meeting with like-minded colleagues empowers one to face daily challenges with a renewed vision. ”
