How do we establish and maintain health care that is accessible, patient and society oriented, and of good quality? That question occupies hundreds of nurses from science, education, and practice at the 6th European Nursing Congress ENC22.
Apart from covid-19, countries all over the world are struggling with the impact of the Russian war in Ukraine and climate change. Meanwhile, people’s trust in government and institutions is at a low. Covid-19 still has a huge impact on the mental and physical health of nurses all over the world. Their recovery is of key importance, and not only for their personal wellbeing. A shortage of nurses means: less access to care, as we have all witnessed during the pandemic.
Nursing workforce shortages, it seems, are here to stay. If we really want to future proof nursing, we will have to use all the solutions that nurses, nursing science, nurse educators, ICT, Knowledge Dissemination and Translation, organization sciences, healthcare insurers and policy makers have to offer. And, perhaps most important: we need to involve patients, their social networks, and society at large. ENC22 has engaged internationally renowned keynote speakers on all these vital aspects.
ENC22 is a hybrid congress. The main programme is virtual, but universities of applied sciences, universities, and caregivers at seven locations in The Netherlands combine the online programme with face-to-face workshops and discussions.
ENC22 aims at setting an agenda that will give nurses the role of drivers of change that is so badly needed.
