Nurses and midwives are at the forefront of global efforts to improve and enhance healthcare delivery with the goal of addressing the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Nurses and midwives work across diverse healthcare settings and community settings and are uniquely positioned to lead on, and contribute to, the achievement of the SDGs and transform global healthcare. This conference brings together leaders on this topic to showcase cutting edge research and clinical practice initiatives that demonstrate nursing and midwifery thought leadership in the development of sustainable health systems and services, with global reach and local impact. This conference will facilitate opportunities for individuals to come together and transform self, teams and communities.

The conference will be delivered as a hybrid event. A hybrid event will give the opportunity to individuals to travel to Ireland subject to Public Heath Guidance or if this is not possible virtual sessions enabling audiences to engage online from across the world will be made available.
