Call for Applicants: EAHAD Nurses Committee

EAHAD is inviting haemophilia nurses to apply for one vacant spot on its Nurses Committee.

 

To apply to join the Nurses Committee, please send a short letter of motivation (maximum 300 words) outlining why you wish to be a part of the committee. Please also include in the letter the following information:

Full name

Haemophilia Treatment Centre you are affiliated with

Number of years working with people with bleeding disorders

Whether you work with children, adults, or both

 

Please send your letter to nurses@eahad.org no later than 17 February 2017. It will be considered carefully by the current Nurses Committee members to select the applicant whose profile and motivations best fit with the committee’s current composition.

 

Please note that in order to be considered for a place on the Nurses Committee, you must:

be a registered nurse,

be able to speak and read English at an intermediate or higher level, and

be working in haemophilia-related services and preferably be participating in advanced nursing activities

 

Nurses Committee membership offers an opportunity to contribute to the development and implementation of nursing and inter-professional EAHAD projects and events, including the Pre-Congress Day for Nurses and Physiotherapists. Members of the Nurses Committee are expected to actively participate in the work of the committee, including attending 2-3 in-person committee meetings per year. We estimate the average amount of work required to fulfill these duties is ½ day per month.

 

We are seeking a new member for a three-year term that would begin in Spring 2017.

EuroBloodNet approved as a European Reference Network

On 15 December 2016, the European Reference Network (ERN) Board of Member States voted to approve the EuroBloodNet ERN along with 22 other rare disease ERNs. EuroBloodNet encompasses rare haematological diseases, including haemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders.

 

European Reference Networks, an initiative of the European Commission, are networks of healthcare professionals and centres of expertise aimed at improving quality, safety, and access to  highly specialised healthcare in Europe.
