First Philippine Nursing Townhall Meeting a huge success

The inaugural Philippine Nursing Townhall Meeting last 29 May 2020 was a huge success.

The event was envisioned as a major annual high-level meeting dedicated exclusively to advancing nursing in the Philippines. It brought together key nursing decision makers -- Dr. Linda Buhat (ANSAP), Dr. Leah Paquiz (ANG NARS) & Dr. Irma Bustamante (PNRS) -- from the Philippines. Facilitated by Prof. Rozzano Locsin, the historic virtual event encouraged timely debate on emerging issues related to the profession in the light of the recent launching of the “State of the World’s Nursing Report”.

For participants from 9 countries, it provided an important forum to secure a coordinated, multi-leveled response to address the emerging nursing issues.

Participate in an international research project

There are many occasions in nursing practice that result in grief. However, grieving as experienced by nurses is not often recognized. Studies have shown that ineffective grieving of nurses may lead to negative consequences, including physical and psychological disturbances, compassion fatigue, burnout, and heightened intentions to leave nursing work. In this regard, we would like to invite you to participate in this survey focused on your grieving experience in dealing with patients' death.

If you are a registered professional nurse from the Philippines, you can participate in this study.
