IAHSA Applied Research Forum: Nurses in Long Term Care


The 2016 IAHSA Applied Research Forum will take place 21 September 2016 in conjunction with the 2016 EAHSA Conference. This year’s forum will focus on the role of nurses in long-term care. Drawing on research done by members of the International Consortium of Professional Nursing Practice in Long Term Care homes, the forum will focus on challenges with respect to the supply of nurses, competencies and creating environments in which nurses can practice person-centered care.

Recent research conducted in Spain on the factors that influence the effectiveness of the nursing practice in long term care settings will be discussed.

Chaired by IAHSA Board member Professor Julienne Meyer of City University of London and Dr. Kathy McGilton, Senior Scientist at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, the Forum aims to achieve a broader understanding of  nurses in long term care and how to maximize their full scope to achieve person-centered environments. Research gaps and opportunities will be identified.

Other faculty include Dr. Kirsten Corazzini of Duke University), with a particular focus on person-centered care in England and Sweden, Dr. Robyn Stone of the Center for Applied Research at Leading Age in the US and Christa Merzeder of Switzerland.
