Time to act – together towards excellence in health care education

The Nordic Forum for Nurse Educators (NFNE) was launched in Rovaniemi, Finland 2011. After that the event has been organized in Sweden, Norway, Estonia and Lithuania. In 2022, it is time to come back to Finland. The 6th NFNE2022 will be organized in Turku 14-16.11.2022, Finland by Turku University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with University of Turku, Hospital District of Southwest Finland and NORDPLUS MEDICO -network (Nordic Medication Educators network).

The core of this event is to share innovations, ideas and experiences of educators and discuss the latest innovations and developments in health care education. This event is targeted to educators,  teachers and researchers working in professional education in different types of institutes, clinical education, and academia. We do not wish to limit the event only for those working with nursing education. There is so much common interest, good practices and innovations to be shared between educators from different health care fields.

During the two main days we will be looking into different perspectives on undergraduate and postgraduate health care education: pedagogics and learning environments, but also on professional development of health care educators. This event aims to be relaxed and cozy in atmosphere, thus providing information on the latest research and development in education and great opportunities for networking and fostering future collaboration in the Nordic and Baltic region of Europe. If you are outside the Nordic or Baltic countries, don’t worry, you are still warmly welcome.

Professor Steve Tee

Professor Steve Tee DClinP, MA, PGCEA, BA, DPSN, RMN, PFHEA, NTF
Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, Bournemouth University

Steve joined Bournemouth University as Executive Dean of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences in September 2015. Before that he was Dean for education at the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, King’s College London and Associate Dean at the University of Southampton. He has worked in the NHS and in higher education for thirty years and provided strategic and operational leadership in a range of senior roles. He was a former Chair of the London Higher Health Group and more recently was appointed Emeritus Professor at Bournemouth University.  

As a nurse he has worked in acute, rehabilitation and community settings. His research interests include participatory approaches to health care delivery and education particularly focusing on service user involvement. As a professor, he has researched and published widely on many aspects of nurse education in healthcare and has edited books and journals, having been associate editor of Nurse Education Today for more than 10 years. He was appointed Principal Fellow of Kings College London and the Higher Education Academy in 2014 and National Teaching Fellow in 2015. 

He believes strongly that patients and their families should be at the heart of clinical decision-making and care delivery, to ensure that all healthcare practitioners have the values of care and compassion as well as the capability to provide world-class evidence-based healthcare.

Senior clinical lecturer Katri Manninen

Katri Manninen
Senior clinical lecturer, RN, MSc, PhD
Swedish Red Cross University, Karolinska University Hospital, Karolinska Institutet

Katri works part-time at Swedish Red Cross University since 2015 and is program director for specialist program in nursing within infectious diseases, a program that she started together with a team of colleagues at the university and from the infectious clinics in Sweden. Year 2005 she established, together with a team of colleagues at the Karolinska University Hospital, Department of Infectious Diseases, a clinical education ward for nursing students. Currently she is the pedagogical leader of the clinical education ward. She also works as a university nurse responsible for educational issues, evolving the nursing care with special responsibility for patient involvement. As a nurse she works at the department of infectious diseases and has also previously worked in geriatric clinic.

Beside the education and clinical work, Katri is a researcher within medical education and her specific research field is learning in clinical practice. She has studied student learning, from the perspectives of students, supervisors and patients, in a clinical setting with an explicit pedagogical framework. She is currently involved in research project about designing for trust in clinical education, educating clinical supervisors, learning clinical reasoning and forming a pedagogical framework for clinical education for all healthcare professions.

She strongly believes that today´s students need to experience authenticity during their clinical education to become tomorrow´s professionals and educators need to understand the complexity of learning process to be able to give both challenges and support for the students. Furthermore, patients should be involved as active participants in students’ learning.
