Leadership in Nursing: Challenges for the future
This year, the conference theme is about “Leadership in Nursing”. Leadership in nursing is conceptualized as occurring in three primary domains: in clinical practice with patients and staff, within healthcare institutions and professional organisations, and in healthcare policymaking areas. Powerful leadership is deemed important to face the challenges of current nursing care. It might lead to superior performances in clinical practice, thereby delivering benefits to those involved in the delivery or receipt of care. This conference will address different aspects of leadership in nursing, as well as the evidence based perspectives on this topic. This international conference will allow lively discussions and debates on challenges and opportunities for leadership in nursing in a global perspective.
We are asking contributors to present empirical studies highlighting the diversity of leadership roles in nursing and its effects on healthcare in Europe.
Proposed contributions should present rigorously implemented scientific studies including: innovative research approaches, synthesising existing evidence, mixed methods research and developing, testing, evaluating, and implementing complex interventions.
If you want to contribute by presenting your work, please submit your abstract before 16th April 2018.
EANS members can do so using the ‘Submit an Abstract’ button below.
All abstracts will be peer reviewed. We expect to inform you on the outcome of the peer review process by 30th April 2018.
