Royal Edinburgh Hospital
Health challenges in the 21st century are changing which means how care is delivered and by whom also needs to change. The Triple Impact Report identified nursing’s central role in the future of health care, directly implicating the profession as a foundation for the growth and health of societies.
The Nursing Now Campaign kicked off February 27th 2018 with the aim to create a global network of nurse champions and advocate for more nurses in leadership positions. Through strengthening the role of nurses and increasing the voice of the nursing profession it is anticipated that health of communities across the globe will improve!
In support of Nursing Now, University of Edinburgh nursing students have hosted a coffee rounds at the Royal Infirmary and the Western General, which were well received by staff and proved a fantastic platform to engage nurses in conversations about nursing and so demonstrated support of each other (see link to U of E nursing blog for details). The conversation will continue with an event at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital on 5th October 2018.
All are welcome to attend. All you need is yourself and if you are a nurse some way of identifying yourself as such. Please invite others who may be interested!
