Swedish National Association Meeting

The 43rd EDTNA/ERCA International Conference was held in Riga, Latvia in September 2014. It was a great success.

  • An EDTNA/ERCA seminar in Stockholm, together with industry, in November 2014 was held at Danderyds Sjukhus AB in Stockholm. It was a meeting for all Registered Nurses and Nurses in the Renal Departments in the Stockholm area. There were 50 people attending and we had two very interesting speakers, Jeanette Ohlsson Carlborg and Jonas Spaak. For more information please read the November issue of the Newsletter.
