1st ETNA International Conference 2008
On behalf of the European Transcultural Nurses’ Association (ETNA) and Dokuz Eylul University School of Nursing, we invited you to the 1st ETNA International Conference, which took place in Izmir, Turkiye, June 4-6, 2008.
As ETNA, we have only completed, in June 2007 our second ETNA Transcultural Summer School- Workshop, that year in Modena, Italy. Details of the workshops can be seen on this website
The scientific and organising committee organized a programme which has as its main theme "Transcultural Nursing in Europe: Current Practice and Future Challenges" which gave space to four subthemes:
European and global transcultural nursing futures
Current research in transcultural nursing and health within Europe
Current educational approaches in transcultural nursing and health
Migration of nurses within Europe
Turkiye has been a cradle of civilisation and culture in every stage of mankind's enchanting existence. Izmir was established at least 5000 years ago and Alexander the Great was told by Aristo, the philosopher, the following "If you do not see Smyrna you remain lacking".
The combination of the scientific and innovative program together with the social activities planned for the Izmir Conference offered you all the possibilities to strengthen scientific collaboration, renew friendships, and enjoy the city of Izmir.
