ACCYPN 2023 Conference

22 May, 2023 | News

The Australian College of Children and Young People’s Nurses Conference theme is “The New Age of Children and Young People’s Health Care”.

We’ve designed the program so you get the most out of your NT experience by either arriving early or staying following the Conference to explore Darwin and the surrounds.  

The aim of the Conference is for us to reflect on how we adapted to the global pandemic in providing care to the children and families that we work with, as well as ourselves.  We will focus on what worked, what did not, how have our services changed and how can we look at shaping the future of health care for children and young people. We will also address, how did we look after ourselves during this time and what have we learnt about self-care and adapting to a fast-moving situation and information overload.
