EDTNA/ERCA Statement of Solidarity with Ukraine
The appalling invasion of Ukraine is causing immense suffering, loss of human life, hardship and families to separate as millions of Ukrainians are forced to flee their homeland.

At EDTNA/ERCA we are saddened by the devastating scenes and are concerned for all healthcare professionals who bravely continue to provide care amidst senseless destruction and unimaginable human suffering. We stand in solidarity with all nurses and other healthcare professionals in Ukraine, grateful for their commitment and professionalism. Our utmost concern is for their safety and security, being on the frontlines of this atrocious humanitarian crisis.
We also appreciate the hard work and dedication of all healthcare professionals (local and volunteers) who are caring for the Ukrainian refugees at the border of Ukraine with neighbouring countries.

EDTNA/ERCA joins the call for a rapid resolution of Ukraine and all other conflicts to restore a normal and peaceful life in the world.
Dr. Jeannette Finderup the 1st of October 2021 became an associate professor of nephrology and patient involvement at Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University, Denmark.

To promote a global interest in renal care by sharing knowledge and experience among our members
The European Dialysis and Transplant Nurses Association/European Renal Care Association (EDTNA/ERCA) is a multidisciplinary organization for those working in renal care. The mission of the Association is about ‘achieving the best level of education, standards and research for all renal care professionals caring and supporting their patients and families around the world’. To be able to live up to this mission, we are a group of multidisciplinary professionals from different parts of the world. Many tasks are split and shared amongst us, enabling us to be stronger and to achieve our goals.

We strive to ensure that the outcome of our education programmes and projects in collaboration with our members, delegates and partners will show that excellence in education is our pursuit.
