Breakfast Sessions, Practical Workshops, Keynotes and other Concurrent Sessions - there is something for everyone

Year after year, the APNA national conference provides a preeminent platform to recognise and celebrate the best examples of primary health care nursing, further building on the expertise and collegiality of the formidable nurse workforce. Three days of tailored professional development for nurses working in primary health care around Australia, APNA’s annual national conference delivers inspiring keynotes from nurses leading the way; interactive workshops that will engage you; sessions from nurses making a difference and all the latest research to ensure you have the best information.

The conference team are working diligently to develop a broad and thought-provoking program featuring workshops, keynotes, panels and breakfast sessions that are valuable and relevant to the daily practice of primary health care nurses. Streams running throughout the conference will embrace the Building on the Best theme with sessions:

  • showcasing innovative and replicable models of care
  • exploring how the profile of nurses' role can be better understood and recognised
  • touching on policy issues impacting primary health care nursing
  • highlighting quality improvement in practice
  • investigating workforce capacity building
  • identifying proficient health care across the life of a patient.

Abstract sessions are made up of dozens of nurses and other primary health care workers, academics, project officers and so on that have made the decision to build on their best in 2019 by presenting to their peers at the APNA National Conference. With oral and poster presentations being selected from the many outstanding abstract submissions, there are great opportunities to challenge yourself and connect with your peers by being a part of the action.

Now into it's eleventh year, APNA's national conferences have built a strong reputation for providing brilliantly balanced conference programs that educate and inspire.
