In November I received an invitation to be one of the main speakers from the Grupo Gics Investigacion Team; and so next month I will be heading south to Paipa, Boyacá, Colombia.
This prospect would not be possible without the support of the conference organisers - GICS and Prof. Wilson Canon Montanez, Nursing Faculty of the University of Santander UDES (Bucaramanga-Colombia) and my employer Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust .
Recently a group of Nursing Faculties of three major Universities in Colombia (Universidad de Santander UDES , Universidad Pedagogica y Tecnologica de Colombia UPTC y Universidad de los Llanos UNILLANOS ) have come together to organize the First International Congress of Nursing Models and Theories.
This congress will be held in the city of Paipa-Colombia 24 and 25 of February, 2011 http://www.uptc.edu.co/eventos/cong_enfermeria/index.html
I very much look forward to this trip for several reasons
