It is with pleasure I invite you to the 47th Annual Perioperative Nurses College of NZNO Conference to take place in Otautahi, Christchurch, New Zealand, Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th October 2020.

It has been 19 years since Perioperative Nurses have joined together in the Garden City of Christchurch to celebrate their passion for nursing. With the theme of 20/20 Vision and Pio Terei as our conference MC, the return of this influential meeting to Canterbury is much anticipated.

Keynote speakers, many from the region, will bring their considerable knowledge and expertise to share with you. Alongside our keynote speakers, other experts will provide learning opportunities that will have direct relevance to the different aspects of our work environments improving our knowledge, skills and clinical practice.

Our theme will challenge you to look to the future, create a clear vision and explore improving your practice and own personal wellbeing. Personal and Patient safety will be threads running through the conference programme. You will have opportunities to meet the experts, listen, debate and network with your colleagues. Of course we also have a fabulous Conference Dinner planned which will be held at the Wigram Airforce Base Aircraft Hall, where in opposition to our daytime forward thinking, we will transport back 100 years with a 1920’s themed occasion.

The professional programme is evolving, so watch this space as the team develop a comprehensive series of presentations to motivate and inspire you.

I cordially invite you to participate in our 20/20 Vision Perioperative Nurses Conference.

On behalf of the organising committee, I look forward to receiving your registration and welcoming you to Christchurch.

Di Darley
Conference Convenor
