Editor’s not i–i
Dear colleagues and associates,
The seventh issue of the journal “Medical Word” which presents the collection of abstracts of the introductory lectures, accredited for the XVI Congress of the National Association of Health Workers of Serbia, held from the 5th to 9th of October 2022, in Vrnjačka Banja, is in front of you. These are valuable papers that show the current state in various branches of medicine, but also offer a framework for discussion and the adoption of important guidelines for professional activities in the coming period.
It is very important to ensure the continuity of knowledge and opinion, and that is why the National Association of Health Workers of Serbia congresses are held twice a year, traditionally gathering the most eminent experts from all fields of medicine, with the aim of presenting and exchanging scientific achievements, professional news, knowledge, and experience with the purpose of improving professional work and advance population health.
We owe a big thank you to everyone who contributed to this issue of the “Medical Word” journal seeing the light of day, and also to everyone who will contribute to this professional gathering by their attendance at the congress, so it can justify its presence and continue to exist..
Prim. Ana Antić, MD, PhD,
