Dear Colleagues,
Turkish Surgical and Operating Room Nurses Association's 5. International & 13. National Congress will be held between 16-19 November 2023 at Aydın, Kuşadası Pine Bay Holiday Resort Hotel. First of all, we would like to share our pleasure to host our esteemed colleagues in Kuşadası, Aydın after the intense pandemic fatigue.

"Advanced, Leading, Inspiring Surgical Nurses with Innovative Approaches" We are proud and happy to invite you to this congress that we set out with this slogan. Since its first congress, the Turkish Surgical and Operating Room Nurses Association has held 12 national- 4 international congresses with great success. In addition to an intensive effort prepared with great devotion in the background of reaching the growing number of participants of our congresses, there is the interest and support of our esteemed colleagues. In addition to improving ourselves scientifically in the congresses we have held, we have also gained many friendships thanks to social shares, and we continue to win with new participants added to us in each congress.

As always, we aim to present you the latest developments in the field of surgical care with information update sessions, conferences, panels, opposing opinion meetings in the scientific program of our congress. With the preparations realized with the understanding of multidisciplinary team, we will come up with a rich scientific program that will appeal to both academicians and colleagues working in the field as usual. In addition to scientific saturation, we prepare a fun and satisfying social program to ensure that you leave our congress with good memories.

In the light of our changing knowledge and habits during the pandemic period, we expect to see all our colleagues among us to share our experiences in the surgical process, and we offer our love and respect with the wish that we will have another successful congress together.

On behalf of the Congress Organizing Committee;

President of the Congress,
Prof. Filiz ÖĞCE AKTAŞ, MD
