Nursing in the Stream of Excellence:
Welcome to ENDA Congress 2013!
Ladies and gentlemen, dear colleagues,
The first ENDA congress took place twenty years ago in Geneva. So it is high time for another congress to take place in Switzerland in 2013. We would like to give you all a warm welcome to the Kongresshaus in Zurich and we are certain that you will find the programme on offer very interesting.
We all know that Europe is experiencing turbulent economic times – the countries are each affected to a very different extent. And in such phases the healthcare system always suffers as well. For one, of course, as a result of austerity measures in the healthcare sector itself, and for another for the fact that people are more vulnerable during times of economic hardship and tend to become sicker in many different ways.
Nursing managers are under particular pressure in such periods and this congress should provide ideas and enrichment to withstand these pressures. In addition to presentations, other channels to impart knowledge and gain information are also available.
We are pleased when colleagues from many other countries join us so that we can learn as much as possible from one another. Besides the professional discussions, we will also provide the opportunity to enjoy life and experience a little joie de vivre with a reception, a gala evening and a variety of excursions.
Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenue! Benvenuto! Bainvegni!
