Nursing Now Global Campaign: ‘Nursing Now Qatar’ board meets by katty : October 01, 2018, 12:23:23 PM
The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), an initiative of Qatar Foundation (QF), and Hamad Medical Corp (HMC) have held the first board meeting of ‘Nursing Now Qatar’, part of a global campaign in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organisation.

Nursing Now Qatar, launched earlier this year at the Middle East Forum for Quality and Safety in Healthcare in Doha, supports the global ‘Nursing Now’ campaign.



The campaign aims to improve healthcare globally by raising the profile and status of nurses worldwide; influencing policymakers; and supporting nurses to lead, learn, and build a global movement.

The ‘Nursing Now Qatar’ board brings together senior representatives of HMC, WISH, Primary Health Care Corp, Sidra Medicine, Al-Ahli Hospital and the University of Calgary in Qatar.

During its inaugural meeting, board members received an update on the ‘Nursing Now’ global campaign, set terms of reference for ‘Nursing Now Qatar’, and set goals and timescales for initiatives and events to promote nursing in Qatar over the coming year.

Among those initiatives are public awareness campaigns, and a ‘Nursing Now’ empowerment training programme for Qatari nurses that will be delivered during Doha Healthcare Week, to take place this November in the lead up to the WISH 2018 summit.
Sultana Afdhal, CEO of WISH, said, “We are delighted to co-organise the inaugural meeting of this important initiative, which is the first of its kind in the Arabian Gulf region.

Nurses and midwives globally make up half of the professional health workforce.

However, they are often not enabled or supported to use their expertise to their full potential, which is an unfortunate waste of talent and resources.

“Our goal is to empower nurses in Qatar, and ultimately everywhere in the world, to take up more leadership roles, and we hope that a larger number of Qataris choose nursing as a profession in the future.”

Dr Nicola Ryley, chief nursing officer, HMC, and co-chair of the ‘Nursing Now Qatar’ board, added, “Nurses and midwives have a long tradition of leading change across health services, demonstrating a passion for leadership and innovation to drive quality and performance improvements.

While these abilities are increasingly recognised across Qatar’s health sector, we need a concerted effort to ensure greater inter-professional respect and collaboration.

We have an amazing cadre of nursing and midwifery professionals working in Qatar, and the ‘Nursing Now’ campaign will help harness their wide range of experiences and skills more effectively.”
