High-quality nurses programme

We are proud to announce the 2023 edition of the ERUS-EAUN Robotic Urology Nursing Meeting which will take place on Wednesday, 13 September 2023. By collaborating with EAU and ERUS with a high standard in urological care, we are able to provide an educational platform based on best practice.

  • See the detailed preliminary ERUS-EAUN23 scientific programme here

The aim of the ERUS-EAUN Robotic Urology Nursing Meeting is to become the educational platform for OR nurses and RNFAs working in robot-assisted urology surgery. The programme will include the latest research in our field of expertise and also look ahead at what the future will bring. The meeting will offer theoretical in-depth knowledge and will discuss many practical aspects that are important for nurses working in robot-assisted urology surgery.

Advanced Hands-on Training with the da Vinci Xi will be offered on Wednesday afternoon, limited places are available.

This training will show you how to deal with Emergency Scenarios:
(1) CPR
(2) Bleeding (controlled and uncontrolled)
(3) Unrecoverable fault
(4) General trouble shooting

From 13-15 September you will have full access to the regular ERUS23 programme with live surgery if you register for the 3-day meeting. Alternatively, one-day fees for nurses are also available.
