International Nursing Congress

Night and sleep

The mysteries of sleeping and waking and nursing in sleep disorders

1 to 3 June 2018

Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

For many patients, but also for the nurses on night duty, the night is a source of many fears and anxieties: loneliness, the after-effects of the day’s events, painfully tossing and turning in bed, the inability to switch off, being wholly thrown back on one’s own resources.

But then night can also be a source of recuperation, with peaceful sleep as the most effective medicine. The grandeur of the starry sky, the silence of the landscape at night and intimate conversation into the early hours. We are all familiar with this special atmosphere of the night.

This year’s nursing congress is devoted to the subject of sleep and sleep disorders in their physiological and biorhythmical dimensions, prevention through nursing therapy and the treatment of sleep disorders, as well as the mythological and spiritual background of sleep as the “darkened” state of consciousness of human beings. Sleeping, dreaming and waking are the three states of our everyday consciousness. Ego consciousness requires their interaction and transitional states. The congress will allow for deeper insights into these mysteries.

You are cordially invited!

Rolf Heine and Birgitt Bahlmann
