The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, in honour of the bicentenary of the birth of the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale.
In honour of this important anniversary, we are delighted to host a one day Italian Nurse Course on Friday 8 May, designed for Italian speaking nurses, as part of the Scientific programme. The course is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Florence Nightingale and will look at developments in nursing practices over the last 200 years both in England, Florence Nightingale’s home country, and in Italy.
The iconic image of Florence visiting the sick with her lantern is known throughout the world. In our world of arthroscopic surgery today, the lantern is the arthroscope and the field hospital is the operating room. As per the topic of the highlight lecture that will be delivered by Luigi Mazzola at the Congress, ‘Leadership from Ferrari F1 to the Operating Room’, we know that the Operating Room a dynamic and highly complex environment requiring the highest level of team-work. Nurses are a crucial part of this team and we invite them to join this multi-disciplinary course to update knowledge and professional skills and learn all about the latest techniques, tools and technology specifically required by those working in the realm of arthroscopic surgery.
