Difficult Cases

Puzzled by an unusual case?

Urology nurses encounter challenging in daily clinical practice, prompting them to look for innovative ways in order to provide optimal patient care.

To fulfil the EAUN’s goal to share insights and best practices, we invite nurses to join the “Difficult Case” Session, which is one of the well-attended sessions and highlights in the Scientific Programme of the annual international EAUN Meeting.

With invited experts and an international audience, this dynamic and unique session aims to come up with fresh perspectives and nursing approaches through an interactive format.
