Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

I am very honoured to welcome you all to the European Sterilization Conference 2004 organized in collaboration with the Society of Central Sterilization Units and the European Forum for Hospital Sterile Supply. It will be held at the Altin Yunus Hotel in Izmir.

Each health institution has different applications of sterilization methods suitable for their own requirements to deal with hospital infections which are a major threat to human and hospital health. The method and place of sterilization and the parameters of monitoring the sterilization process are of major importance in a hospital.

I hope that this conference will serve as a scientific medium, where new knowledge can be shared, and the collaboration and solidarity between managers, technicians, nurses and physicians working in sterilization processes can be strengthened.

I believe that the participation of international and national scientists will help this to be a fruitful and satisfactory programme. I invite all colleagues working in the sterilization process to Izmir on May 5-7, 2004 and wish you all best.

Hülya ERBIL
President of MSÜD

Poster Exhibition

On the occasion of the EFHSS and MSÜD Conference 2004 in Turkey, a poster exhibition will be organised for the first time. In this way we hope to stimulate a number of colleagues to undertake scientific research concerning one or other aspect regarding central sterilization and to foster scientific communication about it. Research is of course of the utmost importance in order to make progress in our domain.

During the conference, a poster price will be awarded to the best poster(s). The final date for submitting posters to the Poster Exhibition has been extended to Monday, 15th March 2004. Please visit the MSÜD website at www.msudtr.org/pos.htm for more information about the Poster Exhibition.
