Centre for Asian Nursing Studies (CANS)

What is Centre for Asian Nursing Studies (CANS)?

CANS was established in 2016 to generate nursing thought-leadership that is uniquely Asian focused.

CANS spearheads nursing Research, Innovation and Education (RIE) initiatives across local and regional healthcare systems. These three thrusts are strategically aligned against CANS’s key strengths in core areas such as geriatrics, infectious disease, wound care and others.

CANS’s mission is to help establish regional platforms and networks to grow competencies, enhance collaboration and promote thought and practice leadership, consequently changing and continuously improving nursing contributions to healthcare.
