The Florence 2020 Conference, while being located in the city of Nightingale’s birth and clearly associating itself with her image and achievements, is intended to be broad-ranging and inclusive. Florence Nightingale is taken as an important reference-point to the history of modern nursing, but the purpose of the conference is to highlight current research across a wide field of endeavour.  Abstracts relating empirical research in the history of nursing are particularly welcomed; but the Scientific Committee will also consider work relating to the history of medicine, and the history of healthcare more broadly conceived.
