In March I’ll be speaking at a military healthcare conference in Bad Kissingen, Germany. The attendees will be healthcare professionals assigned to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (http://www.landstuhl.healthcare.hqusareur.army.mil/) in Landstuhl, Germany. This facility receives all the US military causalities from Iraq and Afghanistan. I am told that the staff is suffering from “compassion fatigue” and needs a motivational shot in the arm. I am honored to have been asked to speak. What is also unique about this facility is that it serves all three branches of the military: Army, Navy, and Air Force. I have requested to visit the hospitalized troops while I’m there and will apparently have an opportunity to do that. What an amazing trip it will be for me and a great opportunity to support our troops – and our fellow nurses. Watch for updates in March.
