We are happy to inform you that Confederation of Indian Industry is organizing the 3rd Edition of Nursing Conclave 2019, scheduled on 1st June 2019 at The Park, Kolkata. The theme of the conference is “Future of Nursing: Leading Changes, Advancing Health – for Better Patient Care”.
It is estimated that there are around 1.7 million nurses in India, making the nursing profession one of the leading segment of our nation’s healthcare workforce. Nurses play a pivotal role in the healthcare industry by providing medical care to the patients and carrying out leadership roles in hospitals, health systems and other organizations. They work in a variety of specialties like Palliative care Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing, Pediatric Nursing, Home Care Nursing, Primary Healthcare Nursing etc. to help people improve their health, and to prevent and heal illnesses.
However, in the hierarchy of the patient care team, nurses are often invisible due to deficiency in the leadership skills in nurses. They play an important role in all the levels of Hospital operations, but their outcomes are not acknowledged. However, today, nursing has progressed from doctors' "handmaiden" to being a healthcare professional. The responsibility hence, is greater to provide a more complex nursing care. Therefore, it is important for a nurse to be empowered and have the empowerment on her duties. This can improve healthcare and patient outcome as a whole.
CII Nursing Conclave, in its 3rd edition, focuses on catering to the needs of nurses and combating their challenges that can make them empowered, encouraged, challenged and affirmed to continue doing what they do best without any barriers. The conference is our platform to have a conversation with the Government, various agencies and with healthcare professionals in the private and public sector at large, so that we drive agreement on the contributions the private sector has made, and will continue to make to nation-building, and the unshackling it needs to truly achieve its potential. Through this conference, we hope to inspire unique collaborations, previously un - thought of partnerships which can help build an ecosystem around Health.
