Willkommen


Dear colleagues, dear members of EANS and DGP!


After the successful first international conference in 2018 and the Covid-19-associated cancellation of last year’s second international conference, we are happy to organize the First Joint Conference of the German Society of Nursing Science (DGP) and the European Academy of Nursing Science (EANS).

The ongoing pandemic has been an important factor influencing nursing and health care globally. In many countries, the pandemic has put extreme pressure on nurses to provide adequate care. Already existing shortcomings in health care systems were highlighted and both professionals as well as care recipients and their relatives had to cope with a situation that was mostly unanticipated. This led to different approaches aiming to keep up high levels of care. Frequently, especially at the peak of the pandemic, this could not be achieved, which should be taken as a mandate for nursing research to reflect the past events and develop strategies to cope with future pandemics and crises.

Therefore, we are very happy to host a number of platform presentations concerned with the response of nursing science to the pandemic under the headline “Lessons learned from the pandemic in different nursing settings”.
As nursing science and research is surely not exclusively concerned with the pandemic, we are also happy to be able to present further interesting research within poster presentations.

As the conference is part of the EANS doctoral summer school for PhD students, the programme also includes posters from EANS 3rd year students and the famous EANS summer school debate, this year addressing the topic “Evidence-based vaccination should be mandatory for all nurses & midwives!”

We are looking forward to welcoming you for a day of presentations, discussion and networking.


On behalf of the organising committee,

Sascha K÷pke
