Darwin to host world neuroscience congress for nurses

Neuroscience nurses from around the world will be coming to the Top End of Australia in July 2021 to attend the 13th World Federation of Neuroscience Nurses (WFNN) Congress.

The Darwin Convention Centre will host the international event in a territory that considers itself an emerging destination for health research.

Vicki Evans, WFNN Vice-President and Scientific Chair, said the Congress will feature a strong scientific programme with lectures from the world’s leaders in neuroscience nursing and will provide an opportunity for delegates to refresh their knowledge on a broad range of topics.

“The Congress will provide a platform for an open dialogue about best practice that will challenge thinking to contribute to better care worldwide,” Evans added.

The Congress theme of ‘Create – Imagine – Inspire – Discover’ and Darwin Convention Centre General Manager, Janet Hamilton, said securing the event for Darwin and the Northern Territory demonstrated the region’s strength in hosting international conferences.

“Darwin is the perfect destination for business events such as the WFNN Congress, where delegates can enjoy our vibrant multicultural city and amazing tourism experiences.”

Delegates will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Darwin experiences as they visit Crocosaurus Cove, the Royal Flying Doctor Service tourist facility and Mindil Beach Sunset Markets.
