The Art of European Addictions Nursing: What has Florence Nightingale taught us?
- What is addictions nursing in Europe
- Nursing diagnosis in addictions
- Addictions nursing clinical reasoning
- Nursing themes concerning patients suffering from addictions
The state of art of addictions nursing in Europe is shared with
our international colleagues. In the keynote lecture nursing
themes concerning addictions will be discussed. How to
use our clinical nursing reasoning in daily practice? Clinical
reasoning in addictions nursing is transcending and not only
regional or country-bound. What is in a name? How to use
our leadership for political and economic power? In the year
of Florence Nightingale these themes are as important as
100 years ago. Using our head, hart and hands for patients
suffering from addictions!
