The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) conducted its 27th International Nursing Research Congress in Cape Town, South Africa from 21-25 July 2016. More than 700 nurses from around the world gathered at the congress.
These conference proceedings are a collection of abstracts submitted by the authors and presented at the research congress. To promptly disseminate the information and ideas, participants submitted descriptive information and abstracts of at least 300, but no more than 1,500 words. Each oral and poster presentation abstract was peer-reviewed in a double-blind process in which three scholars used specific scoring criteria to judge the abstracts in accordance with the requirements of STTI&rsquo';s Guidelines for Electronic Abstract Submission.
