Marin Duvnjak ENT Nurse Practitioner, OHNNG President Foreword It is with great pleasure to welcome and thank you for attending the 27th National Otorhinolaryngology Head & Neck Nurses Group conference. The focus is on Inspiring Innovation. As nurses, we are amazing catalysts for change through inspiration, innovation and influence, we have a unique opportunity to teach, motivate and relate to our patients as well as promote health and improve the delivery of healthcare. This is also your opportunity to network closely with colleagues & leaders who can collaborate as well as advocate their clinical practices across different states and territories.As always, we value our partnership with the Australian Society of Head and Neck Surgeons Annual Scientific Meeting. Holding our conference in conjunction with theirs, provides our delegates with a broad range of educational topics to enhance our current clinical expertise and is highly valued by all. In addition, it gives our delegates direct contact with the corporate sponsors and this too, is a great opportunity to develop working relationships with clinically appropriate representatives.This year’s meeting will allow countless opportunities to share our knowledge and skills, investigate new patient-care strategies and create collegial bonds across multidisciplinary clinicians. Furthermore the OHNNG society provides members with mentorship and scholarship opportunities to further increase their knowledge and expand their clinical practice. Our affiliation with the Australian College of Nursing has for the first time allowed a formalised and accredited course in tracheostomy care. Moving forward through the year please keep an eye on our website for your local state events. I sincerely hope you find the content & conference experience valuable. Finally our AGM will occur later in the year in Sydney as we update our constitution.
