Dear colleagues and associates,
Many years of rich experience of membership of the National Association of Healthcare Workers of Serbia from numerous health institutions throughout the country contributed to the high quality of accredited educational seminars by lecturers, as well as the submitted papers of all participants at the XVIII National Association of Healthcare Workers of Serbia Congress, which is traditionally held this time in Vrnjačka Banja. Participation in Congress is not a privilege of the chosen ones, but of all those who deal with saving human lives, treating the sick, health education, and organization of health services on a daily basis. Once again, I would like to emphasize that the activities of the editorial board of the “Medical Word” journal are aimed at the best interest of all National Association of Healthcare Workers of Serbia members and that the main goal is to support the members of the Association to take an active part in writing papers and creating the journal.
Therefore, the Editorial Board of the journal will continue, as before, to encourage and support all interested colleagues in publishing professional and scientific works intended for health workers and associates of various profiles. It is our wish that the professional medical journal “Medical Word” grow into a highly rated and ranked professional scientific publication. We are proud to point out that in a relatively short time, the journal was well received by the scientific and general public, which gives the editors a strong motive for further work.
