    NORNA invites perioperative nurses to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the 6th NORNA Congress in Bergen, Norway.

    Abstracts from colleagues from countries outside NORNA are also welcome.

    The aim of the conference is to share perspectives on operating room nursing, and how the future might influence or affect our role as operating room nurses. The theme of the congress is: One step ahead – perspectives on operating room nursing.

    The congress language is English and all abstracts should be written and presented in English.

    Clinical case studies

    During the 6th NORNA Congress we will have a new type of scientific session based on clinical case studies. We would like you to submit a case study, that you will be able to present and discuss during the NORNA Congress. This session will allow the audience and the chairs/board to discuss about your clinical case study. Each clinical case study will present a problematic which you encountered in your professional life (either personally or experienced by a colleague). Once the problematic is exposed to the audience and the board, a discussion will be opened to explore the different possible way to solve this issue. At the end of your presentation, you will explain to the audience how this problematic was solved. If you are interested, please submit a PDF file of your clinical case study.

    Abstracts in general subject areas relevant to the congress theme and aim, are welcomed for oral or poster presentation in the following categories:

    • Scientific research
    • Improvement knowledge/quality projects
    • Clinical case studies
