Conference presentations: developing nursing knowledge by disseminating research findings

Brenda Happell Professor of contemporary nursing, Department of Health Innovation, Central Queensland University, Queensland, Australia

Conference presentations provide a potentially valuable means of encouraging more nurses to contribute to the development of nursing knowledge. This article by Brenda Happell, intended especially for novice presenters, aims to help nurses decide the most appropriate conference at which to present

Conference presentations provide an ideal opportunity for nurses to convey and share important knowledge with their peers in a supportive environment. However, the literature that directly addresses conference presentations remains quite sparse. The large number of nursing conferences now available challenges nurses to consider the most appropriate one at which to present. The aim of this paper is to offer a tool to the novice presenter to assist in selecting a conference. The importance of conference presentations for the perpetuation of nursing knowledge is also discussed.
