Nurses know only too well that very often health care does not fit the needs of older people. Therefore we need to find answers to important questions. An essential step in answering these questions is the strengthening of evidence based practice and innovation. Nurse-sensitive patient outcomes represent the consequences or effects of nursing interventions and result in changes in patients’ symptom experience, functional status, safety, psychological distress, and/or costs.
The Fifth European Nursing Congress rises to the challenge and asks: Caring for Older People: How Can We Do the Right Things Right? Practitioners, researchers, educators and policy makers are invited to attend the congress.
