Global Citizen, Global Nursing
This international gathering of thousands of nurses will explore the importance of cross-cultural understanding and global cooperation in nursing. The Conference will provide opportunities for nurses to build relationships and to disseminate nursing knowledge and leadership across specialties, cultures and countries. The three ICN pillars – Professional Practice, Regulation and Socio-Economic Welfare – will frame the scientific programme and the dynamic exchange of experiences and expertise.
Featured plenary speakers will bring inspiration and the latest information on the nursing workforce and workplace, ethics/human rights, clinical care and patient safety. Concurrent sessions, symposia and posters will address these issues plus developments in nursing education, pandemics/disasters, care systems and access, technology, regulation and the history of nursing. The Conference will also be the venue for ICN Network meetings and thought provoking main sessions – including a debate on universal health coverage.
The Council of National Representatives, ICN’s global governing body, will convene from 17-19 June 2015. Conference participants who are members of ICN member associations will be able to observe global nursing leaders identify the profession’s priorities and future directions.
The main objectives of the Conference are:
1. To advance and improve the coverage and quality of health services.
2. To demonstrate the nursing contribution to the health of individuals, families and communities.
3. To provide opportunities for an in-depth exchange of experience and expertise within and beyond the international nursing community.
