Andreja Kvas, MA, professor of health education, education, research and publishing
Education is a sine qua non of our work. Besides different forms of education, we also organise symposia, especially in recent years they have international participation. Each year we focus on one of the topical issues connected with the research findings of our research group. The themes which were thus presented were derived from research (violence, ethics, nurses in Slovenia, complementary and natural medicine, interdisciplinary cooperation between nurses and physicians in health teams etc.). We also regularly publish professional publications, especially miscellanies from symposia.
The purpose of our research group’s work is to acquire, through evidence-based nursing, the quantitative and qualitative data on the basis of which we can introduce novelties in the field of nursing and midwifery care, solve the problems we encounter in our work, contribute to the reputation, status and visibility of the profession and our organization , thus becoming a profession per se.
