In process: Nurses Guide on Vaccination, AMR and Infection Control

Mission, goals and activities

The members of the European Specialist Nurses Organisation (ESNO) are creating a comprehensive guide for nurses in Europe. This aims to equip nurses to be able to address the increasing health threat related to preventable infections. The work will be carried out by a focus group of nurse academics, experts and professional nurses with experience across a variety of health domains.
