The Ninth NCFI European Regional Quadrennial Conference

NCFI European Regional Conference

DATE: September 18-22, 2014

The Christian Heritage of Holistic Nursing: A vision for the future

What can we learn from this Christian heritage as we seek to practice holistic nursing in twenty-first century Europe? This conference will bring together nursing researchers, educators and nurse practitioners from across the continent and beyond to explore the history, present practice and future direction of whole person nursing informed by the Christian faith and heritage in holistic care.

Papers should address one of the three themes:

  • the history of whole person nursing (with an especial focus on the Christian roots and development of the practice and concept),
  • the current practice of whole person care (with a particular focus on Christian perspectives)
  • reflections on new directions and innovations in practice of whole person care.

Submit abstracts in English or Spanish using the attached form (Spanish version available on request) by May 31, 2014 to enfermeria.cristiana@gmail.com.
