The generation and utilization of valuable and meaningful scientific evidence is critical to nursing practice. However, generating and transferring scientific knowledge into action at the point-of-care is a challenge for clinical nurses and researchers. 

The purpose of the 10th Annual EBP/Research Conference is to provide an opportunity for clinical nurses and academic and clinical researchers to network and share experiences regarding sources of evidence and innovative approaches to generating and utilizing credible scientific evidence.

Abstracts for podium and poster presentations focusing on nursing and interprofessional quality, translational, and research projects can be submitted at

Accepted abstracts will be published in the Spring 2019 free online issue of the Ochsner Journal pending editorial approval.

Deadline: 29 June 2018

The Hacettepe University Faculty of Nursing is honored to invite you to the 7th International Nursing Management Conference which will be held 25-27 October 2018 in Bodrum, Turkey.

Jo Corlett argues that “the theory-practice gap has been the subject of much debate within nursing. Issues include: where the gap is, whether it is a positive or negative phenomenon and whether attempts should be made to bridge it." Both educators and managers have worked together to answer these issues.

As a result of these discussions we are proud to announce the conference theme: “Nurses are Hand in Hand: Impacting the Future of Health Care."

Nurses responsible for leading or managing a professional practice ask themselves how they can create a climate where nurses grow and flourish; patients and families receive the highest quality care; and professionals work collaboratively to ensure quality patient care.

The conference addresses these issues: 
• Enhancing interdisciplinary collaboration in healthcare
• Management and leadership for best practices in healthcare
• Practitioners and educators: Sharing the responsibility for creating a safe culture
• Evidence based practices impacting healthcare
• United for the future: Learning from experience
The program will be a memorable one, one in which recognized experts address the conference topics in both oral and poster presentations.

We will be requesting continuing education credits certification from the International Council of Nurses. This has been approved for previous INMC conferences. 

We look forward to welcoming you in Bodrum, Turkey in October 2018.

Deadline: 30 June 2018
