Welcome from the Chair


Dear colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure as the new chair of the EAUN to invite you to the 16th International Meeting of the European Association of Urology Nurses (EAUN), 21-23 March 2015, to the historic and vibrant city of Madrid.

Concurrently organised with the 30th Anniversary EAU Congress (20-24 March 2015), the EAUN annual meeting provides the optimal opportunity to develop clinical practice, keep abreast of key clinical developments in urology, discuss and debate issues that affect us all in our clinical development and consider approaches to optimise our patient care.

As an organisation, the EAUN will deliver a comprehensive scientific programme that aims to closely examine current issues in urological nursing while anticipating the challenges of modern urological care.

Nos vemos en Madrid!

About the EAUN


The roots of the European Association of Urology Nurses can be traced back to the late 1990s.

During that time, many practitioners in the field of urology nursing were looking for opportunities to work within an organised international network - at that time, professional urology nurses associations only existed in several European countries.

This new-found energy of collaboration between urology nurses from different European countries powered the foundation of the EAUN. The EAUN is now a solid association with over 2,300 members which is steadily growing to maturity.
