ITNS was pleased to have The Transplantation Society exhibit at the Transplant Nursing Symposium in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA from 24 to 26 June 2017. Over 300 transplant nurses were in attendance and highlights from the symposium included keynote speakers Linda Ohler, MSN RN CCTC FAAN FAST; and TTS’ President, Nancy Ascher, MD PhD.
Dr. Ascher’s presentation, “Transplantation Challenges: Problems and Solutions from Around the World”, explored current global challenges in the field of transplantation and strategies from international colleagues to address these complex concerns. Symposium attendees enjoyed pre-conference sessions focused on transplant administration and pharmacology, and learned about transplant practices specific to Brazil, China, Sweden, Canada, and Turkey during the International Panel. In addition to the educational offerings, attendees made time to have fun while networking at the ITNS After Dark event with poolside drinks and dancing.
ITNS is already hard at work planning the 2018 Symposiums and we hope you will join us in Berlin, Germany, June 28 to 30, 2018 for the European Transplant Nursing Symposium: Transplant Nursing in a Globalized World; and in the Chicago, Illinois, USA, September 28 to 30, 2018 for the Transplant Nursing Symposium: Transplant Nurses: Leaders in Excellence.
