HISTORY OF ADSNA

In August 1995, at the invitation of Victoria, representatives from Day Surgery Special Interest Groups and Associations in New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia met to discuss the possibility of forming a national day surgery nurses association.

The outcome of this meeting was a unanimous decision that this project should go ahead and to this end a planning committee was formed. The planning committee met again in November, February and June 1996.
