The University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) is hosting the first ever Hamburg Nursing Festival Wednesday (March 21, 2019) on its campus. The agenda includes over 40 events to make further education attractive to nurses and to newcomers throughout Germany. The events include keynotes, guided tours and workshops as well as a performance by poetry slammer Lars Ruppel. An after-show party will give guests an opportunity to network and to make new contacts.
From VR emergency training to robot assisted surgery
Apart from a keynote entitled “Fully automatic! Robot as supplier of goods” and other events, the agenda also features practical events. Nurses can take part in a virtual reality team emergency training, participate in surgery with the Da Vinci robot-assisted surgical system or learn the basics of VR in behavioural therapy. Workshops on yoga and fascia training will also be available.
Online tools to raise job satisfaction
UKE’s new online tool, Jukebox, will go live at 3:30 pm. Those interested in nursing or caring professions will have an opportunity to answer 35 questions to deduce which medical sectors at UKE suit them best. The aim is to attract newcomers to the profession and to raise job satisfaction among existing nurses and carers.
