Nursing Solutions in Difficult Cases - Submission
Difficult Case submission for the 14th International EAUN Meeting, Milan, Italy, 16-18 March 2013, is now closed.
Note: As of 2012 the Difficult Cases session is no longer restricted to solved cases. Also not solved Difficult Urological Nursing Cases are welcome.
Detailed Information on the Project Nursing Solutions in Difficult Cases
At the International EAUN Meeting in Milan (2008) some colleagues remarked that in our latest Good Practice in Health Care series titled ‘The Male External Catheter’ (MEC) only ‘normal’ cases were described. Although it is common practice for a guideline to describe or focus on typical cases, the suggestion implies that there is a need for information on nursing practice in atypical (difficult) cases.
This is where we need your help. If you are among those who encounter problems in daily nursing practice and have found your own solutions, we would like to invite you to take a few photos and write a standard protocol. You can download a form with a list of standard questions (see point 6 under Submission Criteria and Rules). The form should include a description of the problem, the nursing intervention provided, the material you have chosen to help the patient and the final results.
Together with the EAUN you will share and pass on this knowledge to other nurses. The 5 best cases are presented by the authors and discussed with the audience in a special session at the 14th International EAUN Meeting in Milan. The EAUN will place the material on her website as a unique opportunity to learn from each other. All submissions that meet the criteria will be published on the EAUN website and in European Urology Today.
The cases will be evaluated by an expert jury. Jury members are:
- Ronny Pieters, Ghent, Belgium (Urology Nurse)
- Eva Wallace, Dublin, Ireland (Urology Nurse)
- Helen Forristal, Ireland (Nurse practitioner in urology, sub-specialisation in uro-oncology)
- Steen Walter, Odese, Denmark (Professor in Urology)
- Nevin Kanan, Istanbul, Turkey (Professor in Perioperative Nursing and Urology Nursing)
Free Registration for the 14th International EAUN Meeting in Milan
Those who submitted the 10 best cases (as decided by the jury) will be granted a free registration for the 14th International EAUN Meeting in Milan and will be invited to present their case in 10 minutes during a workshop.
Free EAUN Membership
