International Council of Nurses Conference

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) invites nurses from around the world to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the ICN Conference to be held June 19-23, 2015 in Seoul, Republic of Korea, with the theme “Global Citizen, Global Nursing.”

As the world’s largest international nursing event, the conference will provide opportunities for nurses to build relationships and to disseminate nursing knowledge and leadership across specialties, cultures and countries. The three ICN pillars – professional practice, regulation and socio-economic welfare – will frame the scientific program and the dynamic exchange of experiences and expertise.

Nurses are encouraged to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the conference as concurrent and symposia sessions or poster presentations. Factors that will be considered during selection are: interest to an international audience; relevance to both the conference theme and one abstract sub-theme; scientific or professional merit; contribution to knowledge, practice, policies or programs of nursing or health; and clarity of abstract.

The abstract themes include care systems, economics and coverage; direct care and patient safety; equity, ethics and human rights; and health promotion and disease prevention, among many others.

Abstracts must be submitted online by Oct. 7 (midnight GMT). More details on the abstract themes, instructions on the submission of abstracts and key dates are available on the ICN conference website: www.icn2015.com.
