We are pleased to announce the official launch of the British Liver Nurses Association (BLNA). As you may already be aware, the BLNA is the new national liver nurses group, founded following the merger of the British Liver Nurses Forum (BLNF) and the British Association for the Study of the Liver Nurses Forum (BASLNF).
After 2-3 years of collaborative working, the BLNF and BASLNF members reached a stage where their aims and objectives for liver nursing were such that it was agreed to unite so as to provide one powerful voice to raise the profile of liver nursing, across the UK.
The BLNA is a professional nursing association run by its members for its members and promises to continue to offer professional support for nurses working within all fields of liver disease. The BLNA will take forward the shared values and strengths from both BASLNF and BLNF and together with and on behalf of its members, will ensure opportunities are available to share best practice, as well as attend educational meetings, with the ultimate aim of improving standards of liver care to all people affected by liver disease.
The BLNA, also promises to continue to maintain and develop strong links with all those professional and charitable groups, locally, nationally and internationally. We look forward to working with you all, in the future.
