We salute our health professionals during this crisis, especially our nurses. We also hope that you and yours are well.
We’re calling for news for the CAHN-ACHN Spring 2020 newsletter. Our theme for this issue is frontline nurses in epidemics, which seems fitting for these times. If you have an idea for an article or story about this epidemic or a previous one, please pitch it to us or send us the article/story. Photos are also very welcome.
We’re also asking for conference news. If you were at Florence 2020 or in Brazil, we’d like to hear about your experiences. And we’ll also be posting news about conferences that have been postponed, so if you’ve had to postpone a conference you’ve organized, please let us know.
If you’ve published a new book or article, or know of one that’s of interest to our readers, please send us that info, too. And if you’ve reviewed a new book, perhaps you could shorten your review and send it to us.
The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 20th, 2020. Submissions are welcome in French or English.
