See you all in JAPAN!
Chairperson: Michiko Moriyama
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 10th International Family Nursing Conference in Kyoto. All members of the Japanese Association for Research in Family Nursing are delighted to welcome you here in Japan.
I believe that the family, an essential unit of society, has long been fulfilling crucial functions in fostering the next generation. Yet contemporary families are vulnerable, due partly to diversifying values systems and partly to the considerable changes occurring in family structures. In this context, nursing professionals are expected to play increasingly important roles in supporting families, helping resolve family problems and facilitating the sound growth of them.
The theme of the 10th Conference will be: Making Family Nursing Visible. I hope that the Conference will make world commitments of family health promotion visible through presentation of each region's practice and projects, and allow us to share these knowledge and experiences.
Kyoto, the host city of the 10th Conference, was an ancient capital and a history of over 1,200 years. It is amazing that Kyoto still manifests both ancient and modern aspects. Highlights of Kyoto include Buddhist temples, whose architecture and gardens represent the spiritual backbone of Oriental culture; natural landscapes with seasonal changes, traditional arts, crafts, and Kyoto-style cuisine. It is my sincere hope that during your time in Kyoto you will enjoy these and other elements that embody the essence of Japanese culture.
