Promoting Partnerships in Nursing: strengthening systems for a healthy recovery

Nursing Now is delighted to partner with the Better Health Programme to bring together leading health experts during a 90-minute webinar on 4th November, 8:00 am (GMT) to engage in a conversation about the critical investments needed to strengthen the health workforce and address key issues such as the recruitment, retention and education of nurses. 

This webinar will include examples of how partnerships are contributing to positive change by catalysing and galvanising support, by sharing practice and strengthening health systems. 

This year has offered an unprecedented chance to highlight the work of nurses. The year 2020 was designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, and in April the first-ever State of the World’s Nursing (SOWN) report was published. Even without a global pandemic the work of nurses would have been noticed, but with challenges that this year has brought, an even brighter light has been shone on the incredible contribution and the critical role of nurses everywhere. 

As governments move into recovery, aiming to build strong and resilient health systems, we want to highlight the important role that partnerships and alliances play in strengthening health systems across South East Asia. 

Speakers include: 

  • Htay Htay Hlaing, Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Department of Human Resources for Health, Ministry of Health and Sports, Myanmar. 
  • Suzanna Lubran, Executive Director, Newborns Vietnam. 
  • Romnick Aguilar, Assistant Chief Nurse and Infection Prevention and Control Officer, San Pedro Jose L Amante Emergency Hospital. 
  • Dr Christopher Exeter, Better Health Programme, Department for International Trade, UK Government.: Dr Christopher Exeter
  • Dr Barbara Stilwell, Executive Director, Nursing Now Global. 
  • Matt Daley, Nursing Now Nightingale Challenge Lead.
