WFCCN/ICE World Congress, Brisbane 21-23 April 2016

Dear colleague,

This prestigious World Congress is being held in Australia for the first time. It is aimed at nurses ‘working at the bedside’ and will be of interest to clinicians, educators and clinical managers.

12th Congress of the WFCCN information website

On behalf of the Scientific Committee of the 2016 WFCCN/ACCCN World Congress, we would like to invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at this conference.

On each day of this three-day conference there will be a full program of free papers concurrent with the main program.

The focus for this exciting international conference is CLINICAL CRITICAL CARE NURSING PRACTICE and INNOVATION. As such, abstract submissions are invited for free papers (oral and poster presentations) consistent with this theme. 

Abstracts will be considered for both ORAL and POSTER presentations (see guidelines).

This conference is unique because its focus is CLINICAL PRACTICE. Therefore abstracts are invited that present any aspect of critical care nursing practice. A range of different types of project abstract will be considered including (but not limited to), for example:

- Descriptions of innovative practice and new ways of working
- Quality improvement initiatives
- Education initiatives
- Case studies
- Experience with new devices or technology
- Patient/consumer projects
- Clinical audits
- Practice development projects
- Research translation projects

Please note, traditional research projects will not be accepted for presentation as they are outside the scope of this clinically focused conference. We look forward to seeing your submissions and having you as part of our conference.

This World Congress represents an excellent forum for presentation of your CLINICAL PRACTICE and INNOVATION and, as organisers, we strongly support this opportunity for you to share your knowledge, ideas and experiences with a wider audience.
