Keynote Speaker Announcement: Deva-Marie Beck, Nightingale Initiative for Global Health
Published on Monday, 28 February, 2022

The Community Health Nurses are honoured to welcome as a keynote speaker at CHNC2022: Community Health Nurses....Responsive, Reflective, Resilient:

Deva-Marie Beck
International Co-Director
Nightingale Initiative for Global Health
 

Don't miss your chance to participate in CHNC2022!
 
The CHNC2022 conference theme acknowledges that Community Health Nurses have been at the heart of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, while continuing to ensure that other health needs of Canadians in their communities were also addressed. The past two years have generated an ongoing need to be reflective about nursing practice, determinants of health, Truth and Reconciliation, and more. As time moves forward, the need to be resilient draws upon nurses’ ability to regroup, recharge and reconnect with partners and colleagues.

Our conference brings together individuals who have an interest in Community Health Nursing from practice, research, administration, policy and education. Networking opportunities offer a forum to explore issues of mutual concern as well as exchange knowledge, share evidence and ideas, and generate solutions.

Abstracts are due by March 4, 2022. (Were you accepted to present at CHNC2020? You should have received an update message from CHNC with instructions for proceeding; if not, please be in touch -- you may not need to submit your abstract again)
