Dear ladies and gentlemen,
It is our great honour and pleasure to invite you to the 18th Nursing Conference and 4th Health Professions Conference that will be held on 28-29 March 2019 at the Amadria Park Congress Centre in Opatija.
Following current trends in the education of nurses and health professionals, as well as the trends and issues in the health care system, this year we will gather together to discuss the topic of Global Nursing and Healthcare. Globalization is one of the most important driving forces of the new millennium and, together with urbanization and digitization, has a strong influence on lifestyle and consequently on health and health needs. It also influences the changes in the health care system, as well as the needs in the education of healthcare professionals.
For more than 50 years of education of health professionals, the University of Applied Health Sciences has been following global guidelines in the development of the professions of nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, environmental health engineers, bachelors of medical laboratory diagnostics and radiological technologists. In the era of intensive migration of health professionals in the education system, an increasing emphasis is put on the competitiveness of our students in view of the acquired competences at the global level, the quality of study programs, the development of research projects and the internationalization of the University.
Together with more than 600 teachers and associates, and more than 4,000 students, we are trying to give answers to current issues of health professions and we believe that this traditional and among healthcare professionals recognized 18th Nursing Conference and 4th Health Professions Conference will be the place of discussion, exchange of knowledge and experience, and place of unity.
We invite you to join us at the Global Nursing and Healthcare -18th Nursing Conference and 4th Health Professions Conference!
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
