AFCNA provides many and various way for Australian Faith Community Nurses to network with FCNs around the globe.
AFCNA liaises with comparable professional bodies locally, nationally and internationally. It is a member of the Council of National Nursing and Midwifery Organisations (CoNNMO) in Australia, and World Forum of Parish/Faith Community Nurse Ministries.
AFCNA's chairperson Anne van Loon is speaking as part of the online Westberg symposium (April 12-14 2021 https://www.spiritualcareassociation.org/2021-westberg-symposium.html) in the world forum session looking at some of the barriers that Faith Community nursing has faced in the past and how technology might be able to help us overcome them. FCNs can attend this world forum session free of charge but you will need to let us know.
