Nurse Day: Focus on the patient care

This well-established component of the EFORT annual congresses is directed to all orthopaedic/trauma nurses and healthcare professionals who want to acquire knowledge and share their experiences around improvement of patient’s health, management of rehabilitation, post-operative complications and other issues raised by surgery impact on patients. In Geneva, we will once more conduct a full-day scientific programme bringing international evidence, innovations and views on various aspects of the nursing care.

  • How to manage pain?
  • How to integrate the patients and clinicians’ feedbacks into hospital guidelines?
  • What are the financial costs and staff concerns linked to the healthcare system?
  • How to increase awareness towards psychological and social impacts of surgery on patients?
  • What is the best means for information exchange with a discharged patient?
  • How intra- and post-operative mobility and positioning can optimize recovery and improve life quality of patients?

Make your research contribute to the leading questions
of the nurse knowledge around the world.
