Good patient care is directly related to the quality of the nursing care being provided. The healthcare environment is rapidly changing and all nurses are faced with the constant challenge of keeping their knowledge, skills and practice, up-to-date. As well, the amount of new knowledge available is increasing. To achieve the desired patient outcomes, utilising informed, safe and competent nursing practice is vital. In addition, continuing professional development is a professional regulatory requirement.
The purpose of this conference is to enable all nurses to remain up-to-date on a range of current professional and clinical practice topics.
