Critical Care Doctoral European Nurses (CCDEN) Group Meeting in Utrecht

Dear Colleague

If you hold a PhD or are currently a PhD student, we would like to invite you to join the CCDEN meeting during the 2022 EfCCNa congress in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

The Critical Care Doctoral European Nurses group was created in 2015 in Valencia. Our objective is establishing a network of critical care nursing researchers.

Since then, the group has engaged over 40 members from all over Europe. Members either hold a PhD degree or are current doctoral students.

The group also welcomes nurses who have completed other Doctoral programmes in a European country (e.g. DPhil; DNS; Professional Doctorate or similar).

 We plan to form working groups aligned to specific research interests enabling dynamic communication. Potential CC-DEN objectives for consideration:

·        Networking between and among experienced and inexperienced researchers across and within countries

·        Mentorship and access to subject and methods expertise

·        Building research teams

·        Building a profile of PhD examiners Maybe we should state who is a senior researcher and who needs support?

·        Identifying research priorities in critical care nursing

·        Exchange of ideas and ways to overcome research challenges

·        Building specific grant applications (within interest groups)

If you are interested in joining this group, we will be holding a meeting during the EfCCNa conference.

Friday, 2 September 2022 at 11:00-12:30; please refer to the scientific program for details where we will be meeting.
