Canadian Federation of Mental Health Nurses National Conference

Marriott on the Falls, Niagara Falls, Ontario
Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing in a  Dynamic Health Care Environment: Complexity and Collaboration across the Continuum of Care
The Canadian Federation of Mental Health Nurses National Conference will be held November 1st - 3rd, 2017 at the Marriott on the Falls in Niagara Falls, Ontario. 
Psychiatric/mental health nurses practice in health care settings that are challenged to keep up with changes associated with health care reform, a transformational political agenda and funding challenges. In addition, mental health and addiction care must address increasing complexity of health and social issues faced by clients and families across the lifespan and respond to higher clinical acuity in both hospital and community environments. In responding to these challenges, it is imperative to demonstrate efficiency, fiscal accountability and measurable patient safety and other quality outcomes. The 2017 CFMHN National Conference will explore innovative collaborations, approaches and solutions that address the complexity of today’s dynamic Canadian health care environment.
The CFMHN National Mental Health Nurses Conference brochure is now available. Please take a moment to check out the exciting pre-conference workshops, plenary presentations, posters and concurrent sessions, click here to view. This year’s theme is “Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing in a  Dynamic Health Care Environment: Complexity and Collaboration across the Continuum of Care"
