The Cardiovascular Nurses group is chaired by Jane Hannah. Jane is also on the executive of the Cardiovascular Nurses Council which represents members on both sides of the Tasman.
Jo-Ann Downie represents Affiliate nurse members on the New Zealand Committee. Jo-Ann partners with cardiovascular nurses in centers around the country to deliver training days around the country. Known as “Roadshows”, they aim to update and up-skill nurses working in primary or secondary cardiovascular care settings. Read some comments from Roadshow attendees below.
During the year, the nurses group works with the Annual Scientific Meeting organising committee to prepare for symposiums and business meetings at the ASM.
To find out more or to get involved, contact Jane or Jo-Ann through the Society’s office.
