The last DANA conference was held in 2019. COVID-19 has resulted in the postponement of the Adelaide event in 2020 and again in 2021. We hope to reconvene in 2022.
DANA is renowned for great conferences, forums and symposium. Each year DANA members eagerly await news of the forthcoming event.
The annual DANA Conference and the ever-popular NSW Nurses Forum ultimately merged into one event in 2017.
The 2019 event will be a milestone for DANA as the first DANA D&A Nurse Practitioner Symposium was held in conjunction with the Conference.
