Diana Pluker, recent recipient of the HESTA Conference Scholarship shares her experience:

I was able to attend a SAPNA Peri-operative conference, titled ‘Its all about the Team’, in September 2015 with some monetary support through the Hesta scholarship. Being in the country travelling to attend additional professional development,such as a conference can be expensive and is the usual reason for note attending.

This conference was excellent as it provided an update on current practice, and enabled networking with other peri-operative nurses in the metro area. It allowing discussion on changes and best practice in the general running of the peri-operative environment.

Our conference started with Amanda Gore a brilliant speaker who enthused us for the rest of the day with her energy and positive reinforcement. The two days had excellent speakers with extremely interesting topics, with trade displays during the breaks again allowing for perusal of new products and changes in equipment.

The last speaker brought us back to reality with a personal account of not being the surgeon, but a recipient of our nursing care. It was insightful, emotional and also empowering and  united the whole room, summarising the relevance of the appropriate title of being a Team.

Thank you HESTA for the scholarship which contributed to being able to attend the .
