As the world combats a global health crisis, there is no better time to acknowledge and show gratitude for the men and women at the frontline of our health system. This International Nurses Day we recognise the vital contributions the nursing workforce make to delivering quality healthcare.
The theme for 2020, Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Nursing the World to Health, demonstrates how nurses are central to addressing a wide range of health challenges. Whether that is nurses caring for patients in hospitals or in their homes or working behind the scenes to ensure hospitals and communities are prepared to meet current and future demands.
As our healthcare industry becomes more digitally-enabled and patient-centered, we know that nurses are the frontline users of new digital technology. We are proud to provide solutions to nurses that helps them deliver better and safer care, and makes their day-to-day job easier.
Read on to find out how nurses inspire our teams every day. We also encourage you to share, tweet and post stories about the extraordinary nurses you know that are bringing about positive change!
“I have been incredible fortunate to have worked with brilliant, passionate and talented nurses in hospitals across the UK throughout my career. I’ve recently been involved with Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust as they embark upon the most ambitious project our company has taken on to date and it is being led by a team of incredible group of nurses who are influencing and delivering digital leadership.”
David Proctor, Senior Implementation Consultant at Alcidion
“I have worked with many nurses and midwives around the world and they all share unifying characteristics. They are empathetic, dedicated, and passionate about patient safety and always put their patients first. I feel so privileged to have worked with so many amazing individuals and health organisations to improve patient outcomes and safety.”
Rhian Sketcher, Senior Consultant at Alcidion
“It never ceases to amaze me the dedication of nurses I have come across. Universally, they love their jobs, and show limitless amounts of care for their patients. They have the ability to absorb all of the emotional stresses associated with patient care and that makes them superheroes in my eyes!”
Paul Marriott, Product Manager at Alcidion
“One of the reasons I chose a career in healthcare was because of my mother who worked as a nurse for over 40 years in the UK and in Australia. I’ve worked closely with nurses for the last 10 years in the UK and consider it a privilege to work with such a compassionate, dedicated and caring workforce.”
