Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to the 5th PNAE congress on Paediatric Nursing that will take place on 5-6 June 2020.

It is organised by the Paediatric Nursing Associations of Europe (PNAE) in collaboration with Tartu University, Tartu University Hospital, Tartu Health Care College and Estonian Nurses Union.

We have joined forces to promote the sharing of knowledge and experience with the aim of enhancing paediatric nursing care across Europe. The scientific programme will include distinguished key note speakers from countries across Europe, as well as oral and poster presentations from paediatric and neonatal nurses who will share with us their research findings, service improvements, empirical knowledge and experiences regarding the care of infants, children, young people and their families.

We anticipate Paediatric Nurses from across Europe will attend this congress to enrich their knowledge and to hear about the latest developments in the care of children, young people and their families. The congress will provide the opportunity to network, share ideas and learn from colleagues about improving the care and outcomes for infants, children and young people.

We look forward to welcoming you in our university town Tartu and hope you have an enjoyable and fruitful stay.
