On behalf of ICN
Dear Colleague,

We sincerely hope that you are in good health and coping well with the challenges from COVID-19. As you know, ICN will be holding its next Congress in Abu Dhabi. It is our top priority to ensure the delivery of a safe and effective Congress and the ICN 2021 Congress will be proceeding in 5 - 9 June 2021.

The abstract submission will be open until 31 July. We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation in ICN 2021 before the deadline. 

ICN 2021 will have the overarching theme “Nursing the World Together” and will be a sentinel event in the history of nursing as we reflect on the global pandemic and other health challenges. We aim to celebrate, remember and inform the amazing roles and responsibilities of nurses. It is more important than ever for us to connect the nursing community and National Nursing Associations (NNA) across countries, to share experience, and to provide educational opportunities. We are keen to have your work be shared with thousands of people across the world.

Abstracts can be submitted under eight sub-themes.

Sub-theme 1: Nursing Leadership

Sub-theme 2: Epidemics and Pandemics: Nurses’ Experiences, Responses and Policy Recommendations

Sub-theme 3: Nursing Regulation and Education

Sub-theme 4: Quality and Safety

Sub-theme 5: Nursing Care and Advanced Practice Nursing

Sub-theme 6: Nursing Workforce

Sub-theme 7: Global Health Challenges

Sub-theme 8: Digital Health and Innovation 

You can read more about the sub-themes in the ICN2021 Call for Abstracts here

Besides scientific abstracts, ICN has created concurrent sessions for COVID-19 case studies which allow nurses to share their experience with others working in relation to COVID-19. For more information, please visit the Congress website.

We look forward to your favourable attention to this invitation. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

International Council of Nurses
