On 6th & 7th March, the 5th Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Conference will convene nurses and midwives from around the world to celebrate past achievements, present endeavours, and future contributions of nurses and midwives. Presentations will showcase how individual nurses and midwives, or nursing and midwifery groups, associations or institutions are contributing to global health and well-being across the lifespan in all settings within the following themes:
• Clinical practice
• Leadership and management
• Education and training
• Policy and projects
• Research and innovation.
On Friday 6th March, Executive Director of the Nursing Now campaign, Dr Barbara Stilwell, along with Dr. Judy Khanyola, regional advisor for the Nursing Now campaign, will lead a symposium, “2020 Year of the Nurse and the Midwife: a golden opportunity to shape a healthier world.”
World leaders have committed to the achievement of universal health coverage; tackling non-communicable disease; promoting primary health care; and the Sustainable Development Goals. None of these can be achieved without the contribution of nurses and midwives.
Join us for the conference which will kick off Commonwealth Week, at the Royal College of Physicians, 11 St Andrews Place, Regent’s Park, London NW1 4LE United Kingdom.
