After consultation following the recent Silver Jubilee Meeting of the BSGE in London, it has been agreed that Endometriosis CNS’s should attend the annual scientific meeting each year as part of their clinical role. The BSGE has set this standard and expect the Endometriosis nurse to meet it unless they have planned leave, or another significant reason for non-attendance. A specific programme will be delivered for the Endometriosis CNS’s and it will be a chance to network with colleagues from around the UK. We hope it will be valuable, educational and entertaining. Conference registration rates for nurse will be kept to a minimum to help with the financial costs but as it is a requirement of the post, we expect Trusts to fund the training by covering the registration costs and hopefully travel. It is cheaper to register if you are a BSGE member.
It is hoped that many Endometriosis CNS’s are already members of the BSGE but some may not be. To help those who need to join, the BSGE has agreed that for a limited time the first year of membership for an Endometriosis CNS will be free if they establish a direct debit mandate. Please use the link here to register for membership. We are already working on an inaugural meeting of Endometriosis Nurses at the RCN followed by an exciting programme for the Cornwall ASM.
