|The 1 st. International Home Care Congress 3-6 July 2013 Turkey|
It is a great honor and privilege to invite you to attend "The 1st International Home Care Congress", which will be held at the Dokuz Eylül University (DEU) Nursing Faculty and DEU Home Care Center, Izmir, Turkey from the 3-6 July of 2013.
The result of all the developments in health and technology, people can now live longer than ever. Home care is important for serving the greater needs of these individuals to allow them to remain active and independent in their own homes and communities. We believe this is a fundamental right of all people.
We would like to invite you to this Congress to share opinions, experiences, ideas and promote international dialogue and opportunities in home care. The congress will be a great opportunity for exchanging knowledge on research results of different health care fields from all over the world.
Izmir, historically Smyrna, is Turkey's third most populous city. It is located on the Aegean Sea, near the Gulf of Izmir. It is one of the oldest settlements of the Mediterranean area and Izmir is ready and eager to host all those who are interested to come to the congress, offering its unique cultural heritage, exquisite Mediterranean cuisine, and its lovely summer activities.
The knowledge and experience you bring to this Congress will improve patient care at home. To improve patient care, team work is inevitable. This congress will provide the opportunity to share multidisciplinary experiences, ideas and research results about home care. So we would like to see nurses, doctors, physiotherapist, social workers and the other team members in this congress. Thank you for your consideration of this invitation and I hope to see you here and work together with you. The Organization Committee looks forward to welcoming you to Izmir in June 2013.
