International Conference 19th - 22nd September 2013

19th – 22nd September 2013


As you are probably aware, the 2nd International Conference for PeriAnaesthesia Nurses is taking place in CityWest Hotel, Dublin, Ireland from 19th to 22nd September 2013.

A dedicated multinational organising committee is preparing an exciting educational programme which reflects current trends in perianaesthesia nursing. In addition, the Irish people are renowned for “having the craic” (having fun), so we are planning a lively social programme to keep you entertained during leisure time.

Therefore, we take this opportunity to request your assistance in promoting the ICPAN 2013 conference which can be done by:

Adding the ICPAN 2013 link to your website;

Featuring information about the conference in your newsletters (we have prepared artwork available);

Distributing promotional material during local and national meetings & conference (we will send you the material in advance);

Spreading the word! We regularly circulate E-zines therefore please feel free to pass them on to other organisations;
