Welcome Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the SingHealth Nursing Conference and the inaugural SingHealth Advanced Practice Nurse Conference 2021!

2020 has been a challenging year for all due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it has propelled healthcare professionals to rethink the ways we deliver care to our patients. Being at the forefront of healthcare in this pandemic, our nurses are quick to make the shift beyond bedside to continuously improve, innovate and incorporate technology and evidence-based practices into the delivery of patient care. Even before the pandemic, the professional roles of nurses have evolved and expanded significantly over the past decade – spanning from acute to chronic settings, and ranging from community to global health as well as in the realm of research, education and innovation.

With the theme “Beyond the Bedside: Reinventing Nursing”, this year’s SingHealth Nursing Conference aims to showcase the advancement in nursing research, education and clinical innovation in our efforts to reinvent nursing practices. We are also proud to present the inaugural SingHealth Advanced Practice Nurse Conference that will be held concurrently with the theme “Transforming Care, Leading by Example” to commemorate the milestones of Advanced Practice Nurses (APN) in Singapore since its inception in 2003 as we explore future developments.

Both conferences will feature sharing from esteemed international and local speakers across the healthcare and other industries, on a myriad of topics such as innovation, advanced skills acquisition and nurse-led translational work, to inspire greater development in the care of our patients. At the same time, the conferences also provide a timely opportunity for us to reflect, restructure and realign our practices with the ever-changing healthcare landscape. You can expect a series of lectures on key topics that shape the future of nursing practice such as transformation in leadership, advanced nursing implementations, competency building, assistive robotics in healthcare as well as information and communications technology.

On behalf of the organising committee, we look forward to welcoming you to this virtual hallmark event where you can forge collaborations with like-minded nursing professionals and learn from one another to deliver better care. We wish you a fruitful learning experience as you make new friends, reconnect with old ones and continue to ignite ideas together to reinvent nursing for the future.
