QIH celebrates International Nurses Day 2017

 

Nurses are important to be included in policy and decision making processes as nurses are also on the forefront of all the efforts that are being made to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world to mark the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. This year, the day was marked by the theme: "Nurses: A voice to lead- achieving the Sustainable Development Goals". The programme was organised by QIH with the objective of increasing public awareness of the pivotal role nurses play in family care and health.

Deputy Director Pakistan Nursing Council Ms Fouzia Mushtaq was the guest of honour of the event. In her address she said nurses have a more responsible role to play. Nursing in Pakistan has yet to develop in the context of social, cultural and economic conditions and it must respond to the existing health needs of the society.

Nursing Head Ms Riffat Farzana addressed the ceremony and said that as the largest health care profession in the world, nurses’ role is very crucial to achievement the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). She emphasized that nurses must be engaged in advocacy and lobbying. “We must be involved in the development of any program introduced to improve health services as it is nurses who have the practical knowledge of how health service delivery can be designed, coordinated and effectively implemented.”

CEO, Quaid e Azam International Hospital Dr Shoukat Ali Bangash was the chief guest of the ceremony that was attended by a large number of nurses, doctors and medical staff from various hospitals of the twin cities. CEO said "The role of nurses has now expanded. Nurses today are seen as educators, counsellors and researchers". He paid tribute to nurses for their selfless and crucial contribution in health care. Admiring the work of nurses CEO Dr Bangash advised nurses to have a clear vision of their duties to help the sick and disabled.

CEO, QIH presented a souvenir to Miss Riffat Farzana and gave shields and prizes to nurses as recognition of their extraordinary services at QIH and Thanked to all participants.
