Connecting the Dots: Geriatric Nursing, Education, and Clinical Simulation International Conference, to be held April 2-3, 2009, at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Research Triangle Park, will focus on global issues and solutions, invite best practices from all corners of the health care arena, and involve international experts.
Innovative solutions to meet the challenges faced by nurse clinicians, educators, and leaders will be presented with emphasis on preparing the new nursing workforce, lifelong learning needs of seasoned caregivers, trends and innovations in geriatric nursing education and practice, and educational uses of human patient simulator technologies.
To date, 85 abstracts have been accepted for presentation from innovative institutions in Asia, Europe, and North America. A full day of clinical simulation practice using human patient simulators programmed with geriatric case studies are included as an educational option for conference attendees.
The program was developed and is presented through an international collaboration between The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing and Flinders University School of Nursing and Midwifery in Adelaide, Australia.
It will be held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Research Triangle Park, Durham, North Carolina, close to Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
