From December the 3rd till December the 9th i have been in Chicago (USA). I was there because i was invited to do a presentation for my colleagues in the USA.

The congress was fun to do and there were some great talks, especially  and the talk about “Breaking the circle of addiction” by Dr. Ruth Cangialosi from Footprints To Recovery was very interesting.

Sometimes you see that the state of the patient had changed or sometimes you feel that ‘something’ has changed in/with the patient. Usually it is the feeling of the nurse.
