“Celebrating 10 years in innovation and leadership in clinical practice, research and education”

ICIN 2021 is the 10th in this series of highly successful Congresses, showcasing innovation and leadership in clinical practice, research and education. Featuring both international and national experts, delegates will gain knowledge and insight into how to manage the challenges faced by nurses in today’s complex healthcare environments. 

Message from Congress Organising Committee Chair

The 10th International Congress on Innovations in Nursing 2021 will be a must attend event for professionals wanting to share innovative nursing practices and concepts from around the world.  Last year and for the first time in history, the nations of the world united in celebration of the benefits that nursing and midwifery bring to the health of the global population. Without nurses and midwives, the WHO recognised it will not achieve the Sustainable Development Goals or universal health coverage. It also recognised investing in nursing and midwifery will make an enormous contribution to the rapid, cost-effective and high-quality health care. Unfortunately, we had to defer our Congress because of the impact of COVID but we plan to celebrate in retrospect the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife in 2021!  Please join us for the 10th International Congress on Innovations in Nursing providing this unique opportunity to celebrate the innovations in practice and our contributions to improving the health outcomes of our communities.

We look forward to welcoming you all to ICIN 2021.
