One size doesn’t fit all: Negotiating self-care demands – Case presentations from the realities of a primary care nurse practitioner will be made. The cases will illustrate the process of negotiating self care demands in the presence of specific of basic conditioning factors and foundational capabilities. In the day-to-day world of primary care, nurse practitioner must work with patients to bring together the realities of the medical guidelines for the management of patients’ health problems with the unique patients’ therapeutic self-care demands and their abilities to meet these demands. The development of patients’ action systems for meeting their care requirements requires the nurse to make adaptations and accommodations that meld the known demand within the realities of the patient’s own living experiences. The product of the nurse’s work is a blend of the ideal course of action with realities of patients to help them achieve improved health outcomes.

Moving Forward – Demand for Nursing and Helping Systems in 2020 and beyond Areas that will be explored in this keynote relate to the ever greater demand for professionally educated nurses in the future. Major areas of practice will involve helping persons learn how to care for self as well as providing care. The increasing number of people with chronic diseases and increasing use of technology requires nurses with knowledge of the science of self-care as well as technological skills. Future roles of professional nurses need to be developed in light of these variables. A solid science base is an essential part of professional educationand practice
