Creating opportunities for health equity is foundational to community health nursing. Over the past few years the challenges faced by many in society for acceptance and access to services have been exacerbated. But through application of the Community Health Nursing Standards of Practice, community health nurses have risen to the challenge and modified existing programs or have developed new and innovative approaches to reach out to those who could benefit from their services.
Perhaps you have worked with particular groups in society – for example - those from varied cultural backgrounds, LGBTQ2S+, or Indigenous people. Or possibly changes in technology are providing new opportunities for connecting and providing services. Workplace changes may have supported innovation.
The CHNC2024 National Community Health Nursing Conference provides an opportunity to reflect, share experiences and develop strategies to lead nurses into the future in addressing community needs.
