Professor Cynthia Connolly (University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing)
In the 1930s and 1940s, man-made medicines were replacing biological treatments for life-threatening infectious diseases. The different reactions that children had to these drugs placed unique demands on the nurses who cared for them. Discover how these nurses forged the template for post-war paediatric nursing in the United States and influenced the development of American paediatric nurse research.

The European Conference of the Swiss Society of the History of Health and Nursing (GPG-HSS) in Cooperation with the European Association for the History of Nursing (EAHN) and the European Journal for Nursing History, Theory and Ethics (ENHE), will take place on the 21st and 22nd of June 2018 at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), School of Health, Winterthur (Switzerland).
The conference calls for contributions from scholars who can present research relating to negative experiences of and with health professionals such as nurses, midwives and therapists. Their starting point should be the individual or the collective experience of health professionals and/or of patients and family members with bad care. They should find answers to these questions: What shaped experience of “bads” as the actors addressed them? Whom did they make responsible for their negative experiences? How did they explain them? What did they claim? How did the actors involved deal with the negative experiences? How did those made responsible for “bads” respond to re-establish their standards of good healthcare, reputation and trustworthiness? How did this process contribute to reforms in healthcare?
The following fields of research are suggested:
