East Asian Forum of Nursing Scholars


The East Asian Forum of Nursing Scholars (EAFONS) was initiated in 1997 by Prof. Ida Martinson and her colleagues at School of Nursing (formerly Department of Nursing and Health Sciences) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It aims to provide a regular regional forum for doctoral prepared nurse academics and their students. Since 1997, yearly forums have been held in Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan. The 1st, 7th, 13th and 20th EAFONS were held in Hong Kong.
