Business Development staff at Eakin were delighted to have the opportunity to attend the 5th Congress of Asia Pacific Enterostomal Therapy Nurses Association (APETNA) last week.
The congress was organised in conjunction with the Korean Society of Coloproctology and the Korean Association of Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses. Around 500 attendants from 15 different countries attended the event.
Sejong University in Seoul was chosen as the venue for the congress, which made it extra special for Eakin; Seoul is also the home city of our South Korean distributor SeHo Medical & Organic. Mary and Stuart thoroughly enjoyed working with Youngran Lee on our stand, who was there to greet the Korean nurses and demonstrate our products.
A large amount of interest was shown in the whole Eakin range, with particular interest in Surround™ Skin Protectors, Cohesive® Seals, Cohesive® Paste and the Wound Pouches™. An Eakin Seminar was held immediately after the congress due to a number of nurses requesting more detailed information on the products. We would like to thank all the nurses for their attendance and their interest in our products.
