CAHN/ ACHN ANNUAL CONFERENCE;

June 10-12, 2020  in Ottawa, Ont

“Care in Conflict: Health Care Under Tension”

Deadline for submission:  December 1, 2019

The history of nursing is deeply marked by conflicts. Whether it is the struggle for professional identity, engagement in military conflicts as medical staff, or the various sociopolitical barriers as nurses sought to carry out their nursing practice. It is this tension, inherent in the history of nursing, that we wish to explore during this conference.
Papers touching on the broadly defined themes of tension and conflict within nursing and healthcare are welcome. The aim will be to highlight the different facets of conflicts in the history of health care.
Abstracts on other topics related to the history of nursing and health care will also be reviewed by the selection committee.

Please submit a one-page abstract (250 words max.) and a one page CV for consideration to the Online form.
