International Conferences on Community Health Nursing Research
ICCHNR was formed in 1995 following the success of the first conference held in Canada in 1993. The organization aims to: demonstrate the value of community health care nursing research for improving the quality of health care; advance and share knowledge of community health care nursing practice through research; and encourage the appropriate use of research for community nursing. ICCHNR returned to Canada in 2011 with a successful symposium held at the University of Alberta.
