The art of European addictions nursing: What has Florence Nightingale taught us?

Dr Chris Loth

Saturday, October 10th, 2020  |  12:00 pm EST

Learning objectives:

Participants will understand:

  • 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!
