Learn with and from your peers at the APNA National Conference abstract sessions
Check out the descriptions of the presentations lighting up the Friday Abstracts and Saturday Abstracts
Abstracts are a chance for nurses from the different walks of primary health care to share their knowledge and experience with their peers. It is also an opportunity for those working in, studying and servicing aspects of primary health care, but not necessarily in the role of a nurse, to speak to an audience of their stakeholders - nurses!
Following a record number of abstracts submissions for APNA’s 2019 Annual National Conference, a rigorous review has resulted in an outstanding selection of presentations.
Case studies, practices, interventions, projects and reflections from primary health care nursing were called for in line with the Building on the Best theme and exploring the conference streams:
- 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.
Nurses managing all varieties of chronic disease, perceptions of nursing in primary health care, iron infusions, sleep health, quality improvement initiatives, eliminating hepatitis C in prison settings - feast on sample size punchy presentations on pertinent and intriguing areas of primary health care nursing and workforce development.
Updates are being made daily to ensure the program is current.
Thank you to all who made a contribution to the Nurseforce abstracts - we appreciate your time, thought and hard work in preparing your abstract submission.
