EfCCNa Trauerflor

The EfCCNa is shocked and saddened by the recent atrocity in France and stands alongside many countries and organisations around the world in public condemnation of this unnecessary and senseless killing.  EfCCNa extends its sincere sympathy to the families and friends of those who died and its compassion to those injured. Our thoughts are with our French intensive care colleagues, particularly the Société Française des Infirmiers de Soins Intensifs, in their vast efforts to save the lives of these innocent people injured in the terror attacks and those that will help survivors cope with the psychological after effects.

[Dr Bronagh Blackwood, President of EfCCNa]

I am a critical care nurse and nursing scientist and work at the intensive care unit of the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam. The main focus of my research is on evidence based improvements for the mechanical ventilated patient. Besides my clinical work I am a board member and member of the guideline committee of the Dutch federation of Critical Care Nurses (V&VN-IC). I am very pleased to become the Dutch representative for EfCCNA and looking forward to working together at European level.

Welcome, Frederique
