This faculty-led, 1 credit educational experience will take place at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in Dublin. The RCSI Faculty of Nursing & Midwifery will host its 37th Annual International Conference on Wednesday, 28 February and Thursday, 1 March 2018.
Now in its 37th year – making it one of the oldest conferences in Europe – the Research and Education Conference provides an important forum for practicing nurses and midwives, students, researchers and academics to network, exchange ideas on current research and best clinical practice and ultimately use this up-to-date information to contribute to the enhancement of patient care at the bedside.
The theme for 2018 is: ‘Integrated Care: Ensuring Quality and Enhancing Patient Flow’.
