Nurse Executives New Zealand is pleased to announce plans for the 3rd annual New Zealand Nursing Informatics Conference. This year's theme is 'Making connections in digital health'.

In addition to our keynote speakers, we want to hear about your experiences with technology and information, and we invite you to submit a case study. We want to know what you’re doing, what has worked and why; and if it hasn’t worked, why not, and what have you learnt as a result.

Our conference is once again running in conjunction with the HiNZ Conference. giving you the option to attend two concurrent conferences. The combined conference is expected to attract over 800 delegates including nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, academics, government representatives and managers.

Delegates register once and can attend any session within the two conferences in five streams over three days. Or you will have the option to register just for Thursday 2 November to attend the NZ Nursing Informatics Conference.

I hope that you will consider sharing your experiences at NZNI 2017 and we look forward to receiving your case study.

Denise Kivell

  • Refrain from writing a sales pitch: While product information may be integral to the story, these sessions seek to focus on practical insights and learning. We are looking for case studies that show how innovative solutions can solve a practical problem within a healthcare setting.
