I’m impressed with the quality of the regional and local speakers, particularly the young clinicians and scientist. As compared to when I first arrived in Singapore, this is light year ahead in terms of the general understanding of expertise in medicine, and in science and biomedicine. It’s really quite thrilling.

Nursing Symposium
Bridging Research to Nursing Practice

 Track type: Symposium

Date: 21 Sep 2018


 Time: 1010 - 1140

Location: Academia, Auditorium

Research is an essential component in nursing education and development as it has an immense influence on the current and future professional nursing practice. Nursing research develops knowledge and nurses use research to provide evidence-based care that promotes quality health outcomes for healthcare consumers. Research and practices are closely interconnected yet, bridging research into nursing practice is a challenge as there is no direct flow of knowledge from research into practice. This symposium serves as a platform for discussion on innovative research and contribution to nursing practices. With that objective, various international and local experts have been invited to share their successful experiences translating research into nursing practice.
