ANZONA Motto & Banner Competition

ANZONA is announcing a design competition to create a new ANZONA Motto & banner

ANZONA is looking for both

There are 2 parts to the competition- you can submit a motto or a banner design.
However if you are feeling very creative you can combine the two & submit into both parts of the competition.
For the motto submission just send an email with your idea to info@anzona.net

See here for an example banner

The motto should be relatively short (ideally less than 2 lines) and should represent the work & function of ANZONA.
For the banner design please email your submission using a PowerPoint format or something similar.
The banner should include the logo & the website address.

Submissions will be judged by the committee & the winner/s notified by email.

The winners receive a half price registration to the next ANZONA conference in 2015 in NSW.
If there is only 1 winner who submits a winning motto & banner they will receive a free full registration to the conference.

Closing date is 28th Feb. 2014

South Australian Orthopaedic Nurses Association (SAON) - News

Paul McLiesh has recently taken over the presidency of SAON from Lesley Thomas- a big thank you to Lesley and the committee for their hard work over the past 2 years.

SAON will be holding a number of joint education nights in the coming years to help promote the speciality - we are meeting with the SA Vascular nurses on the 5th May at the Highway Inn. We also plan to hold our biennial workshop in August 2014. The work is titled- ‘When things go wrong in ortho- orthopaedic complications workshop’. We plan to highlight some of the common adverse events that affect our patients as well as some of those rarer but serious complications. Check out the website for more details at www.saon.org

We will be holding our annual quiz night on the 24th Nov- always a good fun night.

SAON plans to work closely with other chapters through ANZONA to promote orthopaedic nursing on the national and international stage.

Please check out our website for more information

New Zealand Orthopaedic Nurses

Anyway in New Zealand (the country Australia is attached to- some people think we are joined by the Sydney Harbour Bridge)
NZONA has held two education sessions thus far this year, one for the northern area and one for the deep south. We are trying expand our presence into other areas such as the East Coast (Gisborne/Napier) and the Wellington region as well. We are also trying to see what links various hospitals may have to the Pacific Islands such as that between Darwin and Bali. Through Kim Brooks NZONA has done some outreach work in Cambodia but we want to reach more into the Pacific as New Zealand often helps in desperate times such as the tsunami in Western Samoa. If there are links there we hope to expand our influence within orthopaedics but utilising connections already made.
We are looking forward to a productive year.
Later in the year Prime TV will be showing a miniseries about nurses in World War One and I think that we should be mindful of the nursing contribution during times of war, especially as the NZ nurses were not initially funded or supported by the NZ government.
