EORNA Launches First European Accreditation System for Continuous Medical Education of Nursing and Healthcare Professionals

BRUSSELS, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- EORNA - the European Operating Room Nurses Organisation - has launched its Accreditation Council for Education (ACE). With ACE, EORNA wants to improve and harmonize the quality of surgical care in Europe. The new ACE is the first European accreditation system for operating room nurses. ACE represents a unique initiative for the professional development of nursing and care in general.

The new ACE will improve the quality and accessibility of continuing education and professional development for nursing and healthcare professionals in Europe. EORNA ACE sets quality standards for distance learning courses and educational events as scientific meetings, conferences, workshops or symposia. Teaching institutes will be able to rely on the ACE quality label and integrate approved courses in their learning plans, thus guaranteeing the latest and accurate information. ACE will also be available to national nursing associations throughout Europe.

After receiving the stamp "EORNA ACE APPROVED", educational courses or events will be able to advertise the label on all materials associated with the course or event. Participating nurses will be able to collect credits points and build their personal continued education program. The review process by the EORNA ACE Board will assure the quality standards of all courses or events.

The system also allows easy exchange of credits between European countries and comparable systems outside Europe, thus improving mobility in the healthcare sector.

EORNA's new ACE will be implemented at its upcoming international Congress "Professional Development - Bridging Perioperative Care", taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 17 - 19 April 2009.

"Educational and training programmes in the nursing sector need alignment and development on a European level. EORNA achieved 1997 to present a curriculum of a minimum of education in Operating room and anaesthetic nursing and care. ACE represents a major step towards achieving a harmonized high-level perioperative patient care in Europe," confirms EORNA President Irini Antoniadou.

Next to evaluating Operating Theatre related initiatives, the ACE will also act as accreditation committee for other healthcare associations and associations representing expert areas including emergency, critical, paediatric, and neonatal care nursing.

The new ACE has been created with the support of Ansell Healthcare, infection prevention specialist and global leader in hand protection solutions for healthcare practitioner and patients.
