Dear Mrs Davies,
We are pleased to announce the 1st International Conference of the International Collaboration of Orthopaedic Nursing (ICON 2010).
ICON 2010 will take place on 16 & 17 September, 2010 in the beautiful city of Dublin. The aim of the conference is to bring orthopaedic and trauma nurses, and other professionals and practitioners linked to musculoskeletal health, from across the globe together. They will have the opportunity to learn, network and share knowledge and ideas with colleagues that will assist them to take steps towards achieving the vision and mission of the organisation.

The international scientific committee invites abstracts from all professionals involved in the care of the orthopaedic patient who wish to share their skills and knowledge with an international audience.
The conference will be comprised of keynote lectures, plenary presentations, concurrent submitted oral presentations, interactive poster sessions, workshops and symposia, and abstracts are invited for all of these sessions. We also welcome and encourage both experienced and first time presenters and offer support and advice in the preparation of abstracts and presentations/posters. Prizes for the best oral presentation and best poster will be sponsored by the Journal of Orthopaedic Nursing.
