Welcome Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the SingHealth Nursing Conference 2021!

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. The shift in roles of nurses beyond bedside encourages our nurses to continuously improve and incorporate evidence-based practices into patient care in tandem with the ever-changing healthcare landscape. This year’s conference, with the theme “Beyond the Bedside: Reinventing Nursing”, aims to showcase the advancement in nursing research, education and clinical innovation in our efforts to reinvent nursing practices.

It is also very timely that the year 2020 has been designated as the ‘Year of the Nurse and Midwife’ by the World Health Organisation in recognition of nursing excellence in healthcare. The virtual SingHealth Nursing Conference 2021 is therefore an opportune time for us to recognise the crucial role and contributions of nurses and midwives in delivering value-driven care. We are also proud to present the inaugural SingHealth Advanced Practice Nurse Conference as part of the programme this year to commemorate the milestones and future developments of Advanced Practice Nurses in Singapore since its inception in 2003.

Featuring a strong line-up of inspiring speakers from healthcare and other industries, the Conference programme will include a myriad of topics on innovation, advanced skills acquisition and nurse-led translational work to inspire greater development in the care of our patients. At the same time, the Conference provides an opportunity for us to reflect and restructure our practices to align with the changing healthcare climate. 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 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.
