Words of Welcome
On behalf of ESGENA, the German Nursing Association (DBfK) and the German Society for Endoscopy Nurses and Assistants (DEGEA), it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 17th ESGENA Conference which will be held during the 21st United European Gastroenterology Week, 12-14 October 2013, in Berlin, Germany.
Following past meetings in 1995 and 2006, this is the third time that the medical and nursing community of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy will meet in Berlin. Much like the city of Berlin, both UEG and ESGENA have changed signiﬁcantly, increasing their activities and hosting what has become a premier meeting within the ﬁeld.
The ESGENA conference is not only an opportunity to meet colleagues from throughout Europe, but also from North and South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. The exchange with nurses from all over the world combined with the opportunity to attend the medical programme of the UEG Week ensures the ESGENA conference is an exceptional educational event.
The three day ESGENA conference will include state-of-the-art lectures, free papers & posters, lunch sessions, several workshops with hands-on training and live transmissions covering current topics in Gastroenterology and Endoscopy.
As the German hosts, DBfK and DEGEA, both members of ESGENA, combine the political work of a nursing association with specialised activities in Endoscopy, this interesting combination will also be reﬂected in the programme.
We hope to welcome you to the 17th ESGENA Conference in October 2013 in Berlin, Germany.
- Michael Ortmann,
President of ESGENA
- Ulrike Beilenhoff,
President of DEGEA
- Christel Bienstein,
President of DBfK
