Please Join Us!
With special excitement and enthusiasm, and on behalf of the IFNA Board of Directors and the IFNC15 Conference Planning Committee, we look forward to connecting with you at the 15th International Family Nursing Conference.
At this time of a global pandemic, tremendous losses to families, and
socio-political unrest, IFNC15 is an opportunity to learn and celebrate family nursing worldwide.
The Conference Planning Committee is busy preparing for the conference. IFNC15 promises to be exciting given the quality contributions that members of the International Family Nursing Association are making around the world.
The theme for the 15th International Family Nursing Conference (IFNC15), is “Family Nursing throughout the Life Course.” IFNC15 will focus on engaging nurses¹, interdisciplinary colleagues, and families worldwide in exploring and discussing family nursing across the life course. Our conference will address family nursing at any points across the life course, i.e., from the perinatal period to childhood and young adulthood, through adulthood to older adulthood, and at end-of-life and during times of bereavement at any life course period and include technological advancements. The conference will emphasize promoting national and international collaborations among families, researchers, educators and clinicians to promote the capacity and capability of family nurses as advocates for optimal family health and well-being throughout the life course.
¹When using the term Nursing we mean Nursing & Midwifery
At the end of the conference, attendees should be able to:
Disseminate innovative educational approaches from around the globe to assess, intervene/promote, and measure family health outcomes throughout the life course across all levels of nursing education.
Appraise family nursing practice innovations and models to inform evidence-based family health practice throughout the life course internationally.
Examine influencing factors, innovative methodologies, advanced technologies, research evidence for practice, and translation of family nursing research related to education, practice, and policy throughout the life course worldwide.
Analyze opportunities for encouraging family nurses to take active roles in health care policy and leadership to support family health and family care across the life course globally.
Attendees will have the opportunity to build knowledge about family-related issues. We hope that the occasion of meeting in a virtual format will allow for more members to participate in the Conference!
We urge you to plan to share family health, family care, and family nursing wisdom with international colleagues at IFNC 15.
Please contact Debbie Zaparoni at IFNA Headquarters if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your participation!
