This paper highlights the momentous events at the World Congress of Dermatology in Vancouver, Canada, in June 2015, in which the International Skincare Nursing Group worked jointly with the Dermatology Nurses' Association to put on an historic nursing scientific meeting and an inaugural global dermatology nursing leadership summit, providing nursing representation for the first time at the Assembly of Delegates. It outlines the achievements made at the event and the challenge for dermatology nursing leadership at international level to respond to unmet or poorly met health need in our field, through nurses working cooperatively to share our expertise and provide support across our nations.
