On the 31th May and 1th June we celebrated our Annual VVOV Congress in Blankenberge Belgium.
There were about 700 delegates over the 2 days. We were also happy to hoste 60 companies during our VVOVcongress and made already promotion for the 7th EORNACongress in Rome in 2015
We create a poster for this opportunity and exposed this on our VVOV stand and on the walls to announce already the next EORNAcongress.
We encouraged also our members to prepare a presentation for the next EORNACongress and will try as association to make it attractive to participate in this project.
There were also workshop :
The main program was devided in 4 fields : security, innovations, management, power of guidance
The hot topics for the moment are accreditation for hospitals .
There was a representant of the ministery of health; Margaretha Haelterman who spoke about the evaluation of the use of the Surgical Safety Check List in hospitals and the score of good practice during sign in, time out and sign out. For the first field she could remarke a 70% of good practice by fiiling this in,for the time out it was 38% and the sign out field had the lowest score. So we have to give more attention to this part of the SSCL.
In line with the Key Skill Management program we held a workshop on preceptorship and mentorship : it was very well appriciated by the attendees.
We desiminate EORNA flyers to promote EORNA as EU association.
The Belgian Professor Marleen Temmerman went the director of the WHO out of 250 candidates : we think that it is a good choise because she has a large background as gynecologist and experience in Africa with HIV studies during several years. Her mission : reducing motherdead and childdead around the world, increase trearthment of HIV patients and make healthcare more accesssible for poor people.
They considered her as a suitable person for this job ; being a senator of such a complex political country she could be the right person to be a mediator global ....Succes.
