Difficult Case Submission

Share your insights- Join the EAUN’s ‘Difficult Case’ Session

Puzzled by an unusual case?

Urology nurses encounter challenging or ‘difficult cases’ in daily clinical practice, prompting them to look for innovative ways in order to provide optimal patient care.

Difficult Case Submission is now closed.

To fulfil the EAUN’s goal to share insights and best practices, we invite you to join the “Difficult Case” Session in London, one of the well-attended sessions and highlights in the Scientific Programme of the annual International EAUN Meeting.

With invited experts and an international audience, this dynamic and unique session aims to come up with fresh perspectives and nursing approaches through an interactive format.

We are looking for difficult or unusual, interesting cases on a topic relevant to urology, continence nursing or a related field. From the contributors who submitted, the EAUN will select the 5 best cases and the authors will be given free registration for the annual meeting in London. The jury will not only look for ‘solved’ cases but are also open to unresolved but interesting cases.

Submission is open from 1 July 2016 – 1 December 2016 (0.00 hour).

Boost your presentation skills, share your insights and step up to the challenge: Join the EAUN’s ‘Difficult Case’ Session!
