Title: EAFONS2023(26th East Asia Forum of Nursing Scholars Secretariat 2023) Theme: Doctoral Nursing Education in Response to the Unprecedented Time: Toward Sustainable Well-being Date: March 10 Fri. - 11 Sat. 2023 Tokyo, JAPAN


Workshop 1 Promoting implementation of Evidence-Based Practice: Asian JBI Centre Initiatives

The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), headquartered in Australia, is a not-for-profit international organisation dedicated to promoting Evidence Based Practice (EBP) globally. There are more than 70 JBI-affiliated centres worldwide. In this time, three JBI centres in Asia (China, Korea and Japan) will be presenting on their efforts to promote EBP." How to integrate evidence into clinical practice is not a very easy question. In Asia, where there are common problems in health services, we will learn from the progressive initiatives of countries with high cultural similarities and consider strategies to further accelerate EBP in each other's countries.

Workshop 2 Increase your visibility: How to publish your work

We hold diverse views of the challenges of publishing our work. I suggest we are challenged to re-think how we manage publishing and build it into our regular work routine - just like we write proposals, secure human subject’s approval, consent subjects, conduct data analysis, and we add prepare publications. Publishing is a significant dimension of research, and it is best to think about publishing as an apart of the cycle of research – you are thinking about publications, writing, editing, submitting, getting reviews, re-submitting, moving to in-press and begin thinking about the next publication. Negotiate authorship and if necessary, set up English editing. You might have one manuscript in review, one in press, and one in planning stages.

Groupwork: What do you see as the major challenges to being successful in publishing your research? Let’s break into small groups with those around you and come to consensus on 2-3 of the major challenges you experience when seeking to get your work published. Ask someone to be your reporter to report what you feel are the greatest challenges in being successful as a published nurse scientist.

Workshop 3 Creating Virtual Reality (VR) teaching materials in nursing education

In this workshop, participants will have virtual reality (VR) experiences used for current nursing education as a simulator, wearing VR goggles and/or head mount displays. Two speakers will be invited to give their innovative lectures on the design and development of virtual reality applications, and the application of the biometric measurements to evaluate VR development. Also, a midwifery expert introduces how to utilize VR education materials in the classroom. Through the workshop, participants will be expected to understand a part of the process of creating VR educational materials by actually shooting with a 360º camera and showing the content.

Workshop 4 Dreams of Nursing Scholars in Early Career

As nursing researchers, why did we choose our own research theme, what do we want to accomplish, and where are we going to? Considering these questions will contribute to your careers and to the health and well-being of the people in your country.

In this workshop, early career nurse scholars will share their future dreams and discuss activities to realize them by the World Café method. Three nursing leaders will share their experiences toward their dream and inspire the early career scholars. Participants will gain insight on how to make their dreams come true and get research network for future collaboration.

Workshop 5 Bio-engineering Nursing/ hands-on workshop: Use of ultrasonography, AI/AR, and wound biofilm visualization technologies

This workshop is designed to enable participants to experience and apply the next-generation nursing technologies developed through Bio-engineering Nursing research to their actual clinical practice and research activities. First, participants will listen to a short presentation on the background of the development of new nursing technologies. Participants will then learn about physical assessment techniques using ultrasound, a new education system using AI/AR, and a technology developed using the power of biology to detect wound biofilms. No advance preparation is required, just come dive into the new world Bio-engineering Nursing is creating!
