Change in Finnish Council Representation

There is a change in the Finnish Council representation. Maarit Lönn, Council member since February 2020, is handing over to Nabil Abu-Saad. We thank Maarit very much for her participation, wish her all the best for her future and welcome Nabil.
Here is his introduction: My name is Nabil. I have been lucky enough to attend the last two congresses of EfCCNa in Belfast and Ljubljana and I right away saw how important and beneficial those conferences are for us critical care nurses. I am 35 years old, I was born in Lebanon and finished my Bachelor degree in Nursing there in Beirut in 2005, I worked in the Intensive care of a busy hospital for around two and a half years.
After that, I moved to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I worked there in the Surgical Critical Care Unit (SSCU-B) of King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre for five years. It was a great time for me both on the professional and the personal level. I developed my nursing skills, traveled, met friends from all over the globe whom I am still in touch with and of course, that was where I met my wife who is from Finland.
So I moved to Finland in 2013 and right away started my Finnish language studies as well as the necessary studies to get my nursing degree accepted here. I started working in the Intensive Care Unit of Meilahti Hospital in Helsinki in April 2014 and that is where I still work.

I am very excited and honored to be selected as the Finnish representative to EfCCNa and looking forward to meet all of you and do great work together
