Dear NOPHO/NOBOS friends, colleagues, invited speakers, guests and sponsors.

On behalf of the organizing committee for the 34th annual NOPHO meeting and 11th biannual NOBOS meeting, we wish you all welcome to Reykjavik. This will be the 5th meeting of NOPHO in Iceland but the first time a joint NOPHO/NOBOS meeting is held here.


Although we have seen major improvements in outcome for our patients during recent decades, many challenges remain. We as doctors and nurses are reminded of this on a daily basis and are often faced with difficult questions on treatment and possible adverse effects. We also have to find time and money for basic and clinical research, including registration of patients and international collaboration. These issues and challenges are reflected in the choice of themes for our meeting and to discuss them we have invited a group of distinguished speakers from both sides of the Atlantic and from the Nordic countries.

The friendship and collaboration between the Nordic countries goes back a long way and is well known. This is also true within NOPHO and NOBOS and is an important factor in improving the care of our patients. We hope this meeting, including the social program, will help to strengthen our bonds, have fun with old friends and meet new ones.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their contributions and help in making this meeting possible. We also appreciate the important help and advice from Elisabeth Broby, the NOPHO webmaster.

We hope this meeting fulfills all your expectations and that your stay in Iceland this time will be pleasant and rewarding.

A warm welcome to all of you!

Ólafur G. Jónsson Sigrún Þóroddsdóttir
