Abstracts Submissions

The Nursing Research, Innovation and Development Centre of Lisbon (CIDNUR) organizes, on November 8, 2024, its 2nd International Research Conference.

With a strong emphasis on self-care as an emerging topic for the 21st century, the conference, which will take place in person and will be live-streamed, aims to deepen the fundamental contribution that research and partnerships represent to current national and international trends in nursing and health. 

It will feature internationally recognised lecturers in the field of nursing research, as well as the presentation of results from completed and ongoing projects at CIDNUR.

Researchers interested in submitting their proposals for Oral Communications and Posters must send their abstracts by May 31, 2024, to the e-mail nursingtrends.cidnur@esel.pt , indicating if the proposal is for an oral communication or for a poster.
