Conférencière principale
Cette année, à l'ACESI, nous sommes fières d'accueillir Patricia Brenner comme conférencière principale. Une publication de Mme Brenner, De Novice à Expert (Excellence en soins infirmiers), a joué un rôle déterminant dans la transformation des perspectives en formation infirmière. Sa plus récente, Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation (former des infirmières : appel à une transformation radicale), provoque une réaction semblable par rapport aux sciences infirmières en milieu universitaire
