On behalf of the organising committee, I am pleased to
invite you to the second Nordic Conference in Nursing
­Research – Methods and Networks for the future, to be held in
Stockholm, Sweden, June 15–17, 2016. The first conference
took place in Odense, Denmark in June 2014 and was very well
We continue the conference theme Methods and Networks
for the Future which was very successful in 2014. The conference focuses on how to develop and strengthen research
methods in nursing research and how to increase research
utilisation. The conference will discuss methodology, different
research methods and how they are applied in nursing research. Furthermore the conference aims to tackle challenges
in building research networks.
The organising committee has arranged a comprehensive and varied programme with well renowned international
­research methodologists and experts as key notes. The
programme will be of interest to all nurses engaged in different
fields of research and networking. All sessions are in English.
We very much hope that the conference will provide the
basis for further organised collaboration between the Nordic
countries in nursing research and clinical work regarding
nursing care.
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, is often referred to as
Beauty on Water or Venice of the North. The city is built on
14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved
medieval city centres. The island of Djurgården, the world’s first
National City Park, is only a short walk from the inner city.
We are also proud to announce that the Stockholm City and
Stockholm County will host a reception at the famous City Hall
for the conference participants (limited places).
We are looking forward to seeing you
in Stockholm.
Ami Hommel
Conference president
