Aesthetic nurses from six different countries gathered at the Mövenpick Hotel Paris Neuilly for the Galderma Global Nurse Faculty meeting on January 28 and 29.
The meeting was chaired by aesthetic nurse prescriber and clinical director of Dermal Clinic in Edinburgh, Jackie Partridge, who explained that the aim of the meeting was to identify and discuss the main challenges that aesthetic nurse injectors face and to examine how dermatology company Galderma can best provide support for these challenges.
“The Galderma Global Nurse Faculty meeting has been a great coming together of like-minded nurses to share experiences and address key issues and challenges,” said Partridge, adding, “it is fantastic to collaborate with Galderma on this exciting initiative.”
There were 12 other participants who attended the meeting from the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, Canada and the US, and they have partnered with Galderma to deliver a series of initiatives and activities in 2017 and beyond.
Other attendees from the UK included aesthetic nurse prescribers Lou Sommereux and chair of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses, Sharon Bennett.
Jenny Andersson Collby, global medical affairs manager at Galderma, said of the event, “Nurses play such an important role in aesthetics and this meeting is the first step in an ongoing programme to shape a series of activities together with a core group of nurses. The members of the faculty have so much collective experience and we are looking forward to working with them.”
