Conference Learning Outcomes

After attending the 2024 International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice, participants will report increased knowledge about the:
  • current state of the science in forensic nursing,
  • concepts impacting the future of forensic nursing,
  • issues influencing the future of forensic nursing and the global response to violence,
  • how structural barriers to equitable care (i.e. systemic racism, discrimination) impact patient outcomes,
  • risks and benefits of technological advances as related to forensic nursing and issues of violence, and
  • strategies for incorporating evidence-based research into forensic nursing practice.

Call for Abstracts

Foundations of the International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice are:
  • presentations by global forensic nursing experts;
  • science from other disciplines with relevance to standards of forensic nursing and other forensic sciences;
  • cutting-edge forensic nursing research; and
  • evidence-based practice (EBP).
The International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) invites abstracts within three categories:
  • 30-minute research and EBP sessions (20 minutes presentation with 10 minutes for Q&A),
  • 90-minute concurrent sessions, and
  • Poster sessions.
Submissions for presentation will reflect one of the following areas:
  • Theory (presenting practice or theoretical concepts as an analysis or framework),
  • Practice (presenting a quality improvement project, programmatic or practice project, or case study), or
  • Research to practice (original or replication research that supports forensic nursing principles and/or applies to forensic nursing practice as an EBP project). IAFN invites both qualitative and quantitative research projects.
