Inaugural Conference To Focus On The Future Of Health
Inaugural Conference To Focus On The Future Of
Health For Aotearoa/New Zealand
The New Zealand Nurses Organisation is proud to support the Inaugural Conference of the NZ College of Primary Health Care Nurses conference to be held 10 – 12 August at Claudelands conference centre in Hamilton.
Topics that will be addressed at the conference range from addressing child welfare and specialist home nursing services, to building clinical excellence and shaping our future health care services within primary care.
NZNO professional nursing adviser, Angela Clark says “The Government’s direction for Better, Sooner, More convenient care is possible if the nursing contribution in primary health care is maximised.”
“Making nursing services a key entry point to primary health care will give New Zealanders earlier access to a comprehensive primary health care service.”
Keynote speakers are Sharon Myoji Schnare – a family nurse practitioner and instructor at the University of Washington who has been recognised for her contribution to advancement of nursing practice by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Service, and Jan Rice – recognised in the Australasian region as leader in the field of wound care, has authored a chapter of the book “Nursing in General Practice”, McGraw Publications 2010 and co-authored “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical Nursing.” Jan works with La Trobe University and a large metropolitan general practice in Australia.
