Dear Colleagues,

We are proud to invite all of you to the 9th National & 1st International Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing Congress, which will organize internationally for the first time as association at the Titanic Hotel Convention Center in Belek between 23 – 26 October 2019.

Our congress is organized every two years and generally lasts five days. However, we will held our Congress for 2.5 days in this year because of economical reasons. While the foreign guests present the topics within the scope of the scientific program of the congress such as “The Role of the Nurse in Preventing Infection in the Orthopedic Operating Room and Radiation Safety, Fragility Fracture, Evidence-Based Applications and Wound Care”, in the panels we organized, we will discuss topics such as “Importance of Movement, Nursing Care in Arthroplasty, Rapid Recovery Protocol, Care of the Child with Orthopedic Problems and Hospital Management of Extraordinary Situations ”. Oral and poster presentations will also take place in our congress.

Throughout the congress, we will share our knowledge and experience with our academician and clinician colleagues, and we will strengthen the team understanding and seek ways to provide more qualified services through joint sessions with physicians with multidispliner team approach.

We prepare an entertaining and satisfying social program to leave our congress with pretty memories as well as scientific memories.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Association of Orthopedics and Traumatology Nurses and the Scientific Committee of the Congress, we are honored to invite you, our colleagues, to be effective and sharing our scientific program. We would like to see you at our congress which will be held between 23-26 ​​October 2019.
