European Doctoral Conference in Nursing Science. (Education News).
The first European Doctoral Conference in Nursing Science was held in Berlin in November 2000, the result of collaboration between Humboldt University of Berlin and the University of Maastricht of the Netherlands. Participants came from nine countries--Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Germany. The 14 oral presentations included qualitative as well as quantitative research projects. While some presentations were on preliminary work, others were on projects that were nearing completion.
Because of the positive response from participants, a second conference was scheduled for October 2001 in the Netherlands. The third conference will return to Berlin and is scheduled for October 4-5, 2002.
Six goals were developed for the conference:
* Meet and establish contacts with colleagues from different countries.
* Present a research project as a part of one's PhD research project.
* Share knowledge and information in the area of nursing research.
* Find out what is currently happening in nursing science around the world.
* Gain experience in oral or poster presentations.
* Have an extensive dialogue with the audience.
The number of participants at the 2001 conference doubled, with students coming from 10 European countries as well as the United States. The presentations, representing a broad spectrum of projects, touched on various practice issues, health promotion, and the use of technology. An overview of the conference and abstracts may be found on the website www.zw.unimaas.nl/edcns2001.
Each 20-minute presentation was followed by 20 minutes of discussion. Sessions were chaired by qualified nurse scientists from different countries. In addition, Dr. Joyce J. Fitzpatrick, editor of Nursing Education Perspectives, spoke on "Navigating the Seas of Scholarly Publication in Nursing."
