Commonwealth Federation of Nurses and Midwives Empowers Nurses and Midwives by katty : July 12, 2017, 06:39:14 PM
The Commonwealth Federation of Nurses and Midwives are presently in Sierra-Leone  to give maternal updates to nurses and midwives.

Established in 1973, Sierra Leone is a member of the federation and has benefited immensely through trainings and conferences.

For five days, nurses and midwives will benefit from maternal updates, on antenatal and post natal care, obstetric, reproductive health, including maternal and child issues.

The Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer, Hussianatu Koroma noted that the training came at a time the Ministry is undergoing a series of reforms to improve on health delivery services, at all levels. She said nurses and midwives will gain knowledge on modern trends of safe delivery, which is the theme for the training.

President of Nurses Association, Senessie Magao, noted that the profession needs continuous refresher courses to keep health workers on their toes, as there is no room for mistakes in service delivery.

Minnesha Yasmine is the education consultant from the Royal College of Nursing. She will serve as lead facilitator during the five day period. She said no woman should die while giving life and this is why nurses and midwives should endeavor in making pregnancy safer, to reduce incidence of maternal and infant mortality.

Director for Reproductive Child Health, Dr. Santigie Sesay, recalled that the future of mothers and infants is in the hands of nurses and midwives, and as frontline runners they have to make sure they give of their best, to make pregnancy safe. He called on the fortunate beneficiaries of the training to make use during the next five days, noting that knowledge acquired will save a life.
