Event details

The School is delighted to welcome Professor Hugh McKenna, Professor of Nursing, School of Nursing, Ulster University, UK, to be the distinguished speaker at the 11th Serena Yang Lecture for the topic "The Pursuit of Excellence in Research Within Nursing: Challenges and Opportunities in the Next Decade".

The Lecture was successfully held on June 1, 2023. Professor McKenna delivered an inspiring lecture regarding the future of research in nursing. The Lecture called for more interdisciplinary research, co-design & co-production, emphasis on prevention rather than concentrating solely on cure, sophistication in the use of information technology as well as the involvement of nursing in planetary health.  The insightful presentation was well-received by the participants.

The School is honoured to have invited Dr Libby Lee, Under Secretary for Health, Health Bureau, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, to deliver an officiating address and Professor Vivian Lin, Executive Associate Dean of LKS Faculty of Medicine of The University of Hong Kong to deliver welcoming remarks.

The Serena Yang Lecture Series is a sincere tribute to Dr Serena Yang for her generosity and support to the School in achieving its major mission of nurturing practitioners, educators and scientists in the field of nursing.  Distinguished speakers and renowned scholars are invited to deliver the named lecture to strengthen the knowledge exchange among nursing practitioners and academics.
