ILC Annual International Conference 2021

The ILC 2021 Annual International Conference:


Held on: 9 and 10 June 2021

Theme: Nursing Leadership for Fundamental Care

For the first time ever, the ILC’s conference was entirely virtual, facilitating attendance and collaboration amongst our ever-growing number of international members.

The theme for the 2021 event was Nursing Leadership for Fundamental Care. This theme recognises that generating practical, sustainable solutions to enhance fundamental care delivery globally requires that we substantially rethink fundamental care and its contribution to our healthcare systems. Key to this radical systems transformation is effective and innovative nursing leadership. Whilst several leadership programs exist within the healthcare space, none are dedicated specifically to fundamental care. The ILC aims to develop and deliver such a program.

The ILC’s 12th annual conference represented the beginning of a larger co-design process aimed at designing a bespoke leadership program for fundamental care.

The ILC’s 2021 Annual International Conference consisted of two parts:

Day One, offering a series of invited speaker presentations from international nursing leaders. Each leader provided their expertise on leadership for fundamental care in one of four key areas: research, education, policy, and practice. This provided conference attendees with a thorough understanding of nursing leadership for fundamental care across the globe and provide appropriate background for Day 2’s events.

Day Two consisted of a series of interactive, co-design workshops. These workshops formed part of a collaborative co-design process to develop a leadership program dedicated to enhancing the capacity of current and aspiring nursing leaders to ensure high-quality person-centred fundamental care within any health system. The workshop brought together ILC members and expert nursing leaders to identify:

  • Key learning and professional development requirements for nursing leaders in different areas and at different levels specifically in relation to fundamental care
  • Goals, parameters and deliverables of a nursing leadership program for fundamental care
  • Barriers and enablers to the implementation of nursing leadership programs for fundamental care across health and care systems
