Background of the project "Nursing Solutions in Difficult Cases"

1603_EAUn_opening-067_adapted

At the International EAUN Meeting in Milan (2008) some delegates indicated that there is a need for information on nursing practice in atypical (difficult) cases. The EAUN Board decided to dedicate a special workshop to this topic.

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 16th International EAUN Meeting in Madrid. 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.

Jury

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, Dublin, Ireland (Urology Nurse Practitioner, 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 16th EAUN Meeting in Madrid

Those who submitted the 10 best cases (as decided by the jury) will be granted a free registration for the 16th International EAUN Meeting in Madrid and will be invited to present their case in 10 minutes during a workshop.

Free EAUN Membership for one year

All submitters of Difficult Cases that meet the criteria and are not yet an EAUN member will be granted free membership of the European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN) for one year.
