2017 DANA ‘Endurance’ Forum

Welcome to the 2017 DANA ‘Endurance’ Forum

Park Royal Darling Harbour Sydney, 11 August 2017

In 2017, the DANA Forum, ‘Endurance’ will take place at the Park Royal, Darling Harbour, Sydney  on Friday 11 August 2017.

This dynamic nursing forum will bring together leaders in the field from across Australia and New Zealand, to share their knowledge about the science of addiction and effective clinical practices.

The DANA Forum theme, Endurance, reflects upon the motivation, time required and spent by Drug and Alcohol nurses, clinicians and their patients, as they work together to achieve their goals.

The DANA Forum provides a valuable opportunity for nurses and health care professionals to hear from industry leaders, stay informed on current issues and join in the discussion with colleagues.

The DANA AGM and the annual Nurse Practitioners’ Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Forum.

We look forward to meeting with you in Sydney!
