Dear Nursing Professional

Speakers:

The 6th Nursing Conference is a three day event, with the


first two days exploring transcultural understanding as a
major challenge in the nursing profession. Awareness of
patients needs and expectations based on culture is especially
important in a world where patients move across borders for
employment, treatment or leisure. There is no doubt then that
improving understanding of the importance of culture will
in turn positively impact the quality of services and patient
outcomes. The third day of the conference will focus on nurses
as agents of change in clinical practice. The days sessions will
emphasise case studies showing what happens when decisionmaking is placed in the hands of people who work at the
bedside and know how patient care is delivered.

Prof Gwen Sherwood, Professor and Associate


Dean for Academic Affairs, University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing, North
Carolina, USA

Of note this year is our collaboration with the UAE Nursing


and Midwifery Council (UAE NMC) who will be represented on
the agenda. Be sure to catch their representatives as they give
presentations on several significant topics at the conference.

This years Nursing Conference will offer participants a unique


opportunity to discuss and debate new areas of thought
in cultural awareness in the nursing profession. It will also
equip participants with multi-context perceptions on nursing
leadership at the forefront of clinical change.
