Online Conference due to Covid-19

2nd International CNHW Conference 2021

Effective measures to keep our treasures – How to care for health professionals and family caregivers

On the 29th and 30th of April 2021, the Competence Network Health Workforce (CNHW) of the Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences in Health, will host its 2nd International Conference. Due to Covid-19 the conference will take place online.

Staff shortage is one of the biggest challenges healthcare systems worldwide must face. The true treasures of the healthcare system – healthcare professionals as well as informal caregivers, are essential to maintain high patient safety and quality in healthcare! Therefore, solutions to promote health workforce retention, including sustainable working conditions and effective support for the informal caregivers, are urgently needed.

At the conference, clinically relevant, practice-oriented and interprofessional scientific findings on the topic, will be the focus of discussion.


The official conference language is English. For our German and French speaking guests and presenters we provide simultaneous translations.
