The conference planning committee was formed from members across the province coached by Barb Sheppard who was instrumental in keeping the committee on track.

They are all to be congratulated for organizing our conference to celebrate our 50th anniversary of PRNABC. Our conference would not be possible without the dedication of this committee.

The commitment and dedication of our industry partners is exceptional. Their continued support is a major contributing factor to the success of our conference. They contribute towards education at many levels. They are present in the operating rooms, help with regional education sessions and teach at the provincial conference. Take the time to thank the exhibitors for their participation as they play an important facet to the advancement of patient care.

Our conference theme “50 years on the cutting edge” reflects our history, our present evidence based practice with validated research and our changing future as the advancement of new technology guides our practice and patient care.

As you celebrate our 50th Anniversary of PRNABC with your perioperative colleagues and friends, think back to 1966 how an IDEA among a few members has developed into this event today. Thank you to them for their dedication and foresight for paving the way of this organization in what it is today.

The cutting edge is you, as a registered nurse, supporting your organization, supporting and teaching your colleagues, enhancing your practice with educational opportunities, keeping abreast on advancement of technology and changing standards. Share your knowledge, all the while delivering safe patient care and competent nursing practice.

It is my hope you are able leave the conference rejuvenated, energized and connected with colleagues across the province with new knowledge and new ideas.

I encourage you to lead the way.
