Invitation from the Chairperson
Welcome to the 10th Council of International Neonatal Nurses Conference, Auckland, New Zealand, to be held May 5-8, 2019.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, I would like to extend to you our ‘māfana mai’, our warmest welcome. This prestigious international event is proudly hosted by the Neonatal Nurses College – Aotearoa (NNCA) in collaboration with New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO) and The Council of Neonatal Nurses (COINN).
Over three-and-a-half-days, an exciting and thought provoking programme consisting of plenary and concurrent sessions and poster presentations will explore the theme Enriched Family – Enhanced Care.
Enriched Family – Enhanced Care (Whannau/Ko e Fakakoloa’o e Famili, share the care) will showcase the innovative neonatal care delivered by you and experienced by families every day around the globe.
The exhibit area will feature the latest products and services available, and the social component will allow you plenty of time to network with the wider NICU family - colleagues, friends and others working or studying in the field of Neonatal Nursing.
New Zealand in autumn is an inspiring and beautiful setting for our Conference. At this pleasant time of year, the weather is just right, whether your interests are to enjoy the amazing scenery and outdoor activities or simply to sit back and enjoy New Zealand’s diverse food, wine, shopping and entertainment.
Don’t miss your opportunity to join nursing colleagues from around the world to explore critical issues, emerging trends and innovations in neonatal nursing, to share global wisdom, to network and foster new partnerships, and to discover the wonders and beauty of New Zealand
Nau mai, haere mai, whakaeke mai – Welcome to Auckland, New Zealand.
