Nursing Now – campaign

By | Events, News | No Comments


Nursing Now, a three-year global campaign (2018-2020), aims to improve health by raising the profile and status of nursing worldwide. Run in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the International Council of Nurses, Nursing Now seeks to empower nurses to take their place at the heart of tackling 21st Century health challenges and maximize their contribution to achieving Universal Health Coverage

The campaign will focus on five core areas: ensuring that nurses and midwives have a more prominent voice in health policy-making; encouraging greater investment in the nursing workforce; recruiting more nurses into leadership positions; conducting research that helps determine where nurses can have the greatest impact; and sharing of best nursing practices.

The campaign is based on the findings of the Triple Impact report. The report concluded that as well as improving health globally, empowering nurses would contribute to improved gender equality – as the vast majority of nurses are women – and build stronger economies.

The campaign is being run as a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing, an independent charitable trust based in the UK. The Campaign Board includes individuals from 16 countries alongside representatives from the International Council of Nurses and the Burdett Trust for Nursing as well as the Director of WHO’s Health Workforce Department, Jim Campbell. The campaign is co-chaired by Lord Nigel Crisp, co-chair of the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health, and Professor Sheila Tlou, Co-Chair of the Global HIV Prevention Coalition.

Tobacco consumption is one of the causes of preventable death. In the 20th century, tobacco consumption killed 100 million people. In 2015, more than 1.1 billion people were smokers. More than 600,000 people, over 25% of whom will die due to exposure to secondhand smoke. By 2030, the total deaths from tobacco use could increase to 8 million people annually.

On June 5, 2019, the Nursing Association of Moldova participated in the end project meeting which took place in Bled, Slovenia. Three people participated on behalf of the Nursing Association of Moldova. During the end project meeting, each participating country presented its final report on the project. Each country presented its planned activities, the problems, barriers encountered, and the lessons learned under the project. Under the EE-COE II project, the Nursing Association of Moldova has carried out a series of activities:

World Health Day

By | Events, News | No Comments

World Health Day is celebrated this year with the theme “Universal Coverage with Basic Health Services,” which reflects the World Health Organization’s number one Objective. People need to get the care they need, when they need and where they live. However, many people in the world and many in the world are still forced to choose between health and daily expenses, such as food, clothing, housekeeping, etc.

The World Health Day event was organized by the World Health Organization, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection, the “N. Testemitanu” University of Medicine and especially the nurses who were very active: the IMSP Emergency Institute of Medicine, University Clinic, IMSP Cardiology Clinic, IMSP Hospital of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection, IMSP Mother and Child Institute, IMSP Municipal Hospital for Children No.1, IMSP Central Military Clinic Hospital, IMSP AMT Buiucani and IMSP AMT Center, IMSP Straşeni Health Center, IMSP Varnita Health Center.

“Being healthy, it’s fashionable!” Emotions at maximum, positive energy, smiles and good will. World Health Day is not about age, everyone participated in this event. Those present at the event had the opportunity to measure their pulse, blood pressure, weight gain, blood glucose, cholesterol, and receive advice from specialist doctors. Of particular interest and great curiosity was the new method of handwashing and laser scanning.

Congratulations on World Health Day, dear colleagues!

Nursing now

Press Release – “Global nursing campaign launched by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge with nurses and health leaders across the world.

Nursing Now campaign to empower and support nurses in meeting 21st century health challenges”

London – The Duchess of Cambridge will today join nurses and other health leaders across the world in launching a global campaign aimed at raising the profile and status of nursing. The campaign recognises that nurses are at the heart of countries’ efforts to provide health for all. As one of the most trusted professions, nurses provide effective and quality care for people of all ages and are central in addressing the increasing burden of noncommunicable diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Speaking at the launch event at St Thomas’ Hospital, London, The Duchess will join the World Health Organization’s Chief Nursing Officer, the President of the International Council of Nurses, health leaders and nurses from countries around the world calling on governments, health professionals and service users to value nurses and champion their leadership in providing the best quality of care.

The three-year global campaign is being run as a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing, in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The London event is being linked up with a launch event in Geneva, Switzerland, hosted by the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève (the Geneva University Hospitals), in the presence of WHO DirectorGeneral, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and global nursing advocate, Princess Muna Al-Hussein of Jordan and senior ICN Executives and Board. The campaign will also be launched in countries including South Africa, Uganda and the United States of America.

Nurses are the lynchpin of health teams, playing a crucial role in health promotion, disease prevention, treatment and care. The WHO estimates that nurses and midwives represent nearly one-half of the total number of health workers around the world. However, for all countries to reach Sustainable Development Goal 3 of health and well-being for all at all ages, WHO estimates that the world will need an additional 9 million nurses and midwives by 2030. These additional jobs represent a global opportunity for investment in health workers. The job benefits will be particularly beneficial for women and young people as demonstrated by the report of the UN Secretary-General’s High Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth.

Nursing Now Co-Chair Professor Sheila Tlou said: “The Nursing Now campaign is about supporting nurses to lead, to learn and to strengthen the profession. We will equip them through training, support and the development of political leadership skills to take their rightful place at the table when decisions are being taken about the future shape of healthcare in their countries.”

Annette Kennedy, President of the ICN said: “The International Council of Nurses is proud to be part of Nursing Now. Through our 133 national nursing associations, we know of the great work nurses are doing to deliver care and improve health, but we also know how tough their working lives can be. Nurses are the answer but we need real investment and support.”

ICN will today release a report and set of resources for nurses to use under the theme “Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Health is a Human Right.” This International Nurses Day report, being launched early, is one way in which ICN brings nursing solutions from around the world to the global policy table.

Elizabeth Iro, WHO’s Chief Nursing Officer, said: “Health workers are the DNA of health systems. They are a Ministry of Health’s biggest asset. Nurses and midwives represent the largest share of health workers and provide care for our families and our communities when we need them most. WHO is delighted to collaborate on the campaign to support nurses and midwives around the world in assisting their countries to achieve Universal Health Coverage.”

Nursing Now was founded by nurses and other health experts based on the findings of the 2016 Triple Impact report produced by the UK’s All Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health Co-Chaired by Lord Nigel Crisp who is also Co-Chair of the Nursing Now board. The report concluded that strengthening nursing globally would have a triple impact of improving health, improving gender equality by empowering women and building stronger economies. Universal Health Coverage will not be achieved unless nursing is strengthened.

Parteneriat – Adunarea generala: „Centrul de Excelență a nurselor din Europa de est în controlul tutunului”

By | Events | No Comments

Adunarea generală în cadrul proiectului regional: „Centrul de Excelență a nurselor din Europa de est în controlul tutunului – formarea nurselor lideri în tratarea dependenței de tutun“

Proiectul dat se bazează pe implementarea instruirii în controlul tutunului, care susține, pe termen lung, modificările standardelor practice de îngrijire medicală. Proiectul implică șase țări: Republica Cehă (în calitate de lider regional), Ungaria, România, Slovacia, Slovenia și Republica Moldova.

image_1_partenersGrupul țintă sunt nursele, cel mai mare grup de profesioniști de îngrijire medicală profesională, care are în mod clar cel mai mare impact asupra evoluției prevalenței fumatului și încercarea de renunțare printre personalul medical și pacienți. Scopurile principale ale proiectului sunt: sporirea cunoștințelor nurselor și capacitatea leadership în tratamentul dependenței fumatului, contribuția în prevenirea cancerului, și crearea posibilităților de a influența instruirea nursing și standardele practice prin  advocacy în Europa Centrală și de Est.

Pentru Republica Moldova a fost o deosebită onoare să fie parte componentă a acestui proiect  internaţional, care s-a alăturat proiectului la 1 februarie 2017, datorită grantului oferit de către Fundaţia Bristol-Meyers Squibb. Suntem convinşi, că această colaborare va contribui la promovarea spiritului participativ și stimularea nurselor din RM, precum și va crea un sistem complex de informare a populației și de consiliere pentru abandonul fumatului.

Astfel, pe data de 20 martie, 2018 la Bucureşti a avut loc adunarea generală a ţărilor partenere pentru a raporta rezultatele activităţilor în cadrul proiectului după un an de implementare. În cadrul adunării au participat reperezentanţii ţărilor partenere cât şi donatorii proiectului. Din partea RM au participat Dna Munteanu Maria, consultant principal în cadrul proiectului şi Dna Tîrziu Liliana, traducător.Image2_parteners

În cadrul acestei întruniri a fost prezentat raportul final privind implementarea activităţilor în cadrul proiectului în RM. Punctele forte ale proiectului fiind experienţa internaţională; metode şi forme noi de transmitere a informaţiei anti-fumat pentru asistenţi medicali, populaţie şi fumători; conştientizarea mai aprofundată a riscului fumatului şi implicarea mai activă a asistenţilor medicali în combaterea acestui viciu periculos.

Activităţile proiectului au inclus sesiuni de workshop cu participarea a 115 asistenţi medicali, organizarea diverselor flashmob-uri cu ocazia Zilei Anti-fumat, lansarea cursului de instruire online pentru asistenţi medicali şi diseminarea diverselor activităţi în cadrul proiectului.

Prin această cale aducem sincere mulţumiri echipei de coordonare şi finanţare a acestui proiect şi tuturor partenerilor participanţi în acest proiect important de colaborare.
