Sixth Pan-Pacific Nursing Conference and First Colloquium on Chronic Illness Care

The Pan-Pacific Nursing Conference hosted by the Nethersole School of Nursing at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is a regular, yet important event in the international nursing conference calendar. Since it was firstly organised in 1999, the conference has been serving as an excellent platform to pool the efforts of nursing and healthcare professionals across cultures and disciplines to promote health and well-being of people in the Pan-Pacific region and beyond.

For the upcoming conference, considering that health and social care services are undergoing transformation in response to the escalating burden of chronic illnesses arising from a rapidly ageing global population, the theme “Achieving transformational and sustainable development in health and social care” is particularly chosen. The conference aims to assemble local, mainland and overseas service providers, academics and researchers to discuss and explore strategies and initiatives for transformational and sustainable development in health and social care services in both local and global contexts.
