A brilliantly balanced program that will educate and inspire

Three days of tailored professional development for nurses working in primary health care around Australia, APNA’s 2018 10th annual national conference will deliver inspiring keynotes from nurses leading the way; interactive workshops that will engage you; sessions from nurses making a difference and all the latest research to ensure you have the latest information.

APNA has developed a broad and thought-provoking program featuring workshops, keynotes, panels and breakfast sessions that are valuable and relevant to the daily practice of primary health care nurses.

In line with the Nurseforce for the Future theme, program streams will explore efficient models of care, workforce recruitment and retention, embracing change, quality and safety in practice, service innovation and nurse leadership.

The conference will provide delegates with opportunities to:

  • extend your scope of practice through hands-on clinical and leadership workshops
  • be inspired by peers
  • enhance your education and build on current skills, including updates on key guidelines and pressing policy issues
  • learn about new and innovative roles for nurses and models of care that can be adopted in similar settings
  • have input into key issues affecting nursing in primary health care
  • exposure to 50+ industry-leading exhibitors for further learning and relationship building
  • attain the CPD hours required for the year to meet national registration obligations.

Be a part of the action - submit an abstract to be considered for inclusion in the conference program.

Interactive learning tied in with lively social events will provide nurse delegates with the opportunity to connect and share their experiences, questions, passions and insights with experts and peers in primary health care.

We can’t wait to see you there!
