Submit a Proposal

The past three years have been a challenging period for both community and public health care workers, nurses and scientists in the fight against COVID-19. In particular, the pandemic has brought about new innovations in communication and cost-cutting benefits in health informatics and nursing informatics and nursing. At the same time, the pandemic has strained hospital staff resources with particular drain on nursing. In Japan, a shortage of nurses existed prior to the pandemic: however, a report by McKinsey discovered that a workforce shortage of nurses is now growing in the US, and it is likely that is fast becoming a global issue. So, it is imperative that nursing education programs rethink how to meet this widening challenge for the healthcare industry.
