ANSA Annual Colloquium: 31 July 2015

ANSA held its first Annual Colloquium on Friday, 31 July 2015 in Gauteng. The purpose of this first Colloquium was to, in collaboration with SANC, DENOSA, other Professional Societies as well as Professional Specialist Societies:

  • Obtain an overview of the current status of Specialist Nursing by sharing ideas and experiences;
  • Discuss common issues around the generic competency framework, education and training as well as practice matters related to specialist nursing in South Africa.

A total of forty attendees were present, and the programme included a morning information-sharing session in which the five guest speakers delivered brief presentations. This was followed by a groupwork session in the afternoon in which the attendees were divided into three groups and delivered presentations to the large group after brainstorming on various topics. More information will be available shortly.

The attendees participated in a very valuable discussion on this day. It is anticipated that many more fora will be created for specialist nursing in order to discuss advanced specialist nursing practice in South Africa.
