Nursing and Midwifery Conference highlights research and innovation

he bi-annual Nursing and Midwifery Research and Innovative Practice Conference recently took place at Royal North Shore Hospital.

The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity to bring together nurses and midwives to share research activities and outcomes, practice development initiatives, programs and innovative changes to care systems.  

The conference covered all disciplines of nursing from primary and community care through to emergency care. PhD students presented their work and clinicians presented projects and research that focused on children through to the elderly.

It is important to reflect on our professions, in particular the nurses and midwives who have assisted in shaping and showing leadership across our health district
Professor Marg Fry

Professor Marg Fry said the conference is a great way to bring a range of staff members from the nursing and midwifery workforce together and provide a reflection of the current state of the workforce.

“The conference brought together so many different specialties which allows us all to learn from each other,” she said. 

The conference featured three keynote speakers: Professor Julie Considine, Professor Ramon Shaban and Professor Robyn Gallagher. Four awards were presented on the day.
