Endocrine Nurses’ Session

Generously Supported by Novartis

Dear Nurse Colleagues

We are delighted to invite you to the joint ICE/ECE 2012 meeting in Florence and to announce that the programme for this meeting includes three sessions specifically for Endocrine Nurses. We are also pleased to announce that Bioscientifica Events will provide translation of the nurse sessions into Italian.

 

We have scheduled two morning clinical sessions and one evening professional development session, where there will also be an opportunity to present your work in a poster presentation and network with other colleagues from around the world. Please see the full programme below.  The Best Nursing Poster Prize winner will be announced during the evening session which will be accompanied by a buffet meal. Please see next page for a detailed programme. It is also a great pleasure to inform you that the congress registration fees for nurses have been substantially reduced to just €100 Euros. This is an introductory registration fee on offer to all nurse attendees whether or not you are a member of the European Society of Endocrinology (ESE).

ESE also offers meeting grants worth up to €400 Euros for current ESE members; please see details on our webpage on how to register for the grants. Please visit the ESE website for information about becoming a member of the European Society of Endocrinology.
