Australian College of Nurse Practitioners 2016 Conference

30 August 2016 - 02 September 2016

Nurse Practitioners are central to patient care, with a crucial role in improving access to quality health care. Our diverse program will include a range of contemporary themes across the clinical practice, policy, academic and leadership elements of the Nurse Practitioner role. The theme "The Centre of Care” emphasises the nursing role - a profession based on caring. As leaders in the provision of patient centred, collaborative, multidisciplinary health care across the continuum, Nurse Practitioners provide quality patient outcomes. The ACNP Conference (incorporating NursePrac ED) provides an opportunity for Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Practitioner candidates, academics, policy makers and leaders to come together, sharing their knowledge and learning from each other, to further enhance patient care. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Alice Springs Convention Centre in 2016 and showcasing the unique beauty of the Territory in their exciting and diverse social events. It will be a conference to remember!
