President's Message

Dear valued PeriAnesthesia Nurses,

I want to take a moment to wish you a Happy PeriAnesthesia Week 2022 on behalf of OPANA.

Ontario PeriAnesthesia Nurses have demonstrated our value as a specialized nursing group this year with skills that extend beyond perianesthesia. We are an extremely knowledgeable and adaptable group that conquers anything. We continuously show empathy and compassion towards our patients and towards ourselves. This pandemic highlighted how resilient PeriAnesthesia Nurses are. We have been asked to go beyond our comfort zone to help other units in need, and we did. We were able to navigate and adapt to our temporary homes.

As a PeriAnesthesia community of professionals, OPANA is committed to ensuring that we thrive as a specialized nursing group. We are in the process of planning an upcoming symposium scheduled for fall 2022. We are currently focusing on the educational needs of Ontario PeriAnesthesia nurses. We are open to any suggestions that would benefit OPANA members and would greatly appreciate any feedback to share with us.

Moreover, Ontario has been selected to host the 2023 NAPANc conference to be held in May 2023 in Ottawa. Planning will be starting soon.

On behalf of OPANA,

Tanya Lachapelle
OPANA President 2021-2023
