International Meeting on

Nursing Research and Evidence Based Practice

Melbourne, Australia   July 31-Aug 01, 2017

Melbourne, Australia July 31-Aug 01, 2017

Theme: Novel approaches and Improved Evidences in Nursing Practice

Track 1: Nursing Education and Research

Nursing Education and Research is a scientific investigation of an issue of importance to the field of nursing. It is a systematic inquiry designed to develop trustworthy evidence about issues of importance to the nursing profession, including nursing practice, education, administration, and informatics. It is essential for the development of empirical knowledge that enables nurses to provide evidence based care. The nursing profession is accountable to society for providing high quality, cost-effective care for patients and families.

Track 2: Evidence Based Clinical practice

Evidence based nursing practice is the process of shared decision making between practitioner, patient and significant others, based on research evidence, the patient’s experiences and preferences, clinical expertise, and other robust sources of information. It determines the best way to deliver health care services to ensure that the greatest number of people receive care. Empirical knowledge can be developed to improve nursing care, patient outcomes & health care delivery system.

Track 3: Evidence Based Non Clinical Practice

Evidence based non clinical practice refers to decision-making profoundly affect medical decisions. These influences patient-related factors such as socioeconomic status, quality of life and patient’s expectations and wishes, physician-related factors such as personal characteristics and interaction with their professional community, and features of clinical practice such as private versus public practice as well as local management policies.

Track 4: Innovations in Nursing Education

Innovations in nursing have become an increasingly important concept in nursing literature. Nursing education promotes an awareness of the diversity that exists within nursing education and the common purposes that bind it together, encourages shared understandings of the various pathways that exist within nursing education and promotes community among nursing students, nurse educators and nurses regarding the complexities surrounding educational preparation for nurse practice.

Track 5: Risk Factors in Nursing and Healthcare professionals

Healthcare workers are attributed to the group at highest risk of biological factors, as they are daily exposed to the diseased environment at their working places. Nursing professionals are commonly identified as being at risk for patient handling injuries, but many other health care professionals providing direct care during the course of a patient’s hospital stay are also potentially at risk. Neuroticism, agreeability and conscientiousness are character qualities mainly seen in burnout syndrome in nurses.

Track 6: Clinical Nursing   

Clinical nursing research is designed to guide nursing to improve the health and quality of the life of addition to provide direct patient care, clinical nurse, and Specialists influence care outcomes by providing expert consultation for nursing staffs and by implementing improvements in health care delivery systems. Clinical nursing studies aims to enrich insight into clinical need and implications for nursing intervention and models of service delivery, and encourage the debate on all spheres of nursing and midwifery practice.

Track 7: Critical Care and Emergency Nursing

Critical care nursing helps nurses to provide safe, effective, patient-centered care in a variety of critical care settings.critical nursing is the delivery of specialized care to critically ill patients that is, ones who have life threatening illnesses or injuries. Critical care nurses provide specialty care to patients with immediate, life-threatening injuries and illnesses. There are many subspecialties within critical care providing enhanced opportunities for clinical practice and professional growth.

Track 8: Healthcare and Management

Healthcare Management System will be used to facilitate the medical requirements. It will be used to maintain the medical history of Patients / employees / Dependents. Healthcare Administration works to make sure that the establishment that they work for can adequately provide care while staying within their budget to provide care for the whole community. Nursing service administration is a complex of elements in interaction. It results in output of clients whose health is unavoidably deteriorating, maintained, or improved through input of personnel & material resources used in an orderly process of nursing services.

Track 9:  New Technology in Nursing Education

Nurse Practitioners have changed the way they administer patient care. They are able to increase their workflow all while limiting their human errors. In return, it makes their job safer, and it is also less challenging on their bodies. Wireless badges or headsets integrate what were once multiple communication methods such as phones and pagers into one seamless technology, reducing response times. New technology can be as intimidating for nurses as it sometimes is for patients, so appropriate training and system design is vital for success. As technology is adapted into more health care settings, it may eventually be used in new, unexpected ways, or bring to light new possibilities that can improve nursing practice and health care even further.

Track 10: Nurse Practitioners Updates

The Second World War increased the development of skills base amongst nurses and enhanced development of Specialist Nurse Role.

Advanced practice nursing is built upon basic nursing education and practice, and NPs possess comprehensive assessment, interviewing, patient and family education, counselling, communication, and care management skills. The nurse practitioner practice is evidence-based and evolves in response to developments in nursing research, advances in medical therapeutics, and changes in the health care delivery system.

Track 11: Nursing informatics

Nursing informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice. Nursing informatics facilitates the integration of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom to support patients, nurses, and other providers. It is the specialty that integrates nursing science with multiple information and analytical sciences to identify, define, manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing practice. In all types of health care organizations, nursing is the hub of the information flow. Developing the science and technology of nursing informatics will enhance the information available to nurses for clinical practice, management, education, and research and will facilitate the role of nurses as communicators

Track 12: Nursing Management

 Nursing Management is the process of working through nursing personnel to provide care, cure, and comfort to group of patients. Throughout history, nursing has been required to respond to changing technological and social forces. The new managerial responsibilities placed on organized nursing services require nurse administrators who are knowledgeable, skilled, and competent in all aspects of management. Now more than ever there is a great emphasis on the business of health care, with managers being involved in the financial and marketing aspects of their respective departments. To confront expanding responsibilities and demands, the manager’s role must take on new dimensions to facilitate quality outcomes in patient care and meet other strategic institutional goals and objective

Track 13: Evolution in Emergency Medicine Practices

Emergency Nurses treat patients in emergency situations where they’re experiencing trauma or injury. These nurses quickly recognize life-threatening problems and are trained to help solve them on the spot. They can work in hospital emergency rooms, ambulances, helicopters, urgent care centres, sports arenas, and more. To provide quality patient care for people of all ages, emergency nurses must possess both general and specific knowledge about health care to provide quality patient care for people of all ages. Emergency nurses must be ready to treat a wide variety of illnesses or injury situations, ranging from a sore throat to a heart attack. Many emergency nurses acquire additional certifications in the areas of trauma nursing, pediatric nursing, nurse practitioner, and various areas of injury prevention.

Track 14: Primary Care Services

Primary care is an essential element for healthy living. Every patient should have a primary care provider who helps them stay healthy, manage any chronic medical conditions, and assist with diagnosis and treatment of minor medical problems. Primary health care includes a range of services, including a focus on wellness, and connecting people with social supports that influence their health status, such as housing or parental support. The role of nurses and midwives, like other health professionals, is as providers of health promotion, prevention strategies, assessment, care, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation. While health professionals can be participants as citizens and experts in some aspects of the provision of primary health care, their contributions must be as partners, guides and collaborators. Care must be provided in a way that is not seen as dominating, with the providers imposing their values and will. Primary Healthcare is dedicated to serving those who experience a barrier in receiving care.

Track 15: Legal Nursing

A legal nurse is an experienced registered nurse who brings his/her medical training and education into the legal field and acts as a consultant for legal matters and/or cases where the presence of a medical expert would be beneficial.

                           Nursing includes professionals in clinical nursing, nursing management, healthcare quality assurance and healthcare risk management. Many legal issues focus on nurses’ professional negligence, employment, discrimination and licensing. Nurse Practice Acts (NPAs) are laws in each state that are overseen by the state boards of nursing. They are also responsible for licensing of nurses and determining who is competent to practice nursing. Common Law is derived from principles or social mores rather than from rules and regulations. It consists of broad, interpretive principles based on reason, traditional justice and common sense. Together, the NPAs and judge made case law define nursing practice. It is a nurse's responsibility to be informed on both the NPA and common law of judicial case law for the state(s) in which they are licensed to practice.

Track 16: Advanced nursing practice

Advanced nursing practice has emerged over the past decades as health care systems and governments around the world have come to recognize that optimizing the nursing contribution to health care through expanding their role is an effective strategy for improving health services. Advanced nursing practitioner in primary care has the ability to operate as an advanced generalist, and provide complete episodes of care for patients presenting with a wide variety of health and social care needs .the patient in primary care has the opportunity to consult with either general practitioner, advanced nursing practitioner or both. An advanced nursing practitioner in general practice who becomes the primary care provider may work with the patient to agree a plan of care, and may deliver a large proportion of that care themselves , or in partnership with medical colleagues and other members of the health and social care team.

Track 17: Cancer and Tumour Nursing

A Cancer and Tumour Nurse give consideration to malignancy patients and those at danger for getting the malady. An oncology nurse is a nursing professional who specializes in caring for people with cancer. Oncology nurses often serve as your first line of communication, and help coordinate the many aspects of your care throughout cancer treatment. Clinical ramifications and growth nursing in view of the rates of torment and different indications archived in the writing, changes in clinical practice are expected to lessen the side effect weight of occupants with tumour. Registered Nurses are key members of the health care team and play important roles in Cancer Care including health promotion, cancer prevention and screening, treatment and symptom management in acute, long term, community and palliative care. Oncology nursing is a specialty practice which requires additional knowledge and clinical skills to support patients diagnosed with cancer and their families.

Track 18: Mental Health Nursing

Psychiatric-mental health nursing is an integral part of the continuum of nursing practice. The practice of psychiatric mental health registered nurses includes the provision of comprehensive, patient-centered mental health and psychiatric care and treatment and outcome evaluation in a variety of settings across the entire continuum of care.  It is a interpersonal process whereby the nurse through the therapeutic use of self-assist an individual family, group or community to promote mental health, to prevent mental illness and suffering, to participate in the treatment and rehabilitation of the mentally ill and if necessary to find meaning in these experiences. New and emerging roles for psychiatric-mental health nurses, certification programs for graduate and experienced baccalaureate nurses, and the emergence of clinical nursing research are only some of the many changes occurring in the field of psychiatric- mental health nursing that have resulted in a burgeoning literature.

Why to attend:

A Nursing Meeting is an opportunity to meet others within speciality to network and to learn the latest clinical information. It is an opportunity no nurse should overlook. Nursing conferences allow nurses of all levels of experience to participate in an area of career and education growth that is not easily found within the structure of the workplace.  Some nurses, especially those working at the bedside, may not see the significance of attending a conference. All too often the floor/bedside nurse believes that conferences are only for management, while others may think that spending one or more days not earning a pay check may not outweigh the opportunity to clock in some additional overtime. There may be a whole host of other reasons why a nurse would prefer to remain home rather than attending a conference. Despite the plentiful excuses (the top two being cost and time), the benefits far outweigh the costs.
