This major new Survey was compiled by ICPAN and published by Elsevier in January 2021.
This International Survey was conducted by ICPAN to find out more on the education, competence and role of the PACU nurse internationally. Eleven member countries of ICPAN took part in this ground breaking Survey.
This is an excellent international collaborative survey conducted by lead nurses from Sweden and the United States. It derived from open forums held at three ICPAN conference latterly, in which delegates were given hot topics to debate and share experience. The focus points here, Education, Competence and the Role of the PACU nurse are the essential questions that underpin PACU practice. The results are interesting and lend support for the need for an international approach to PACU training and competence.
