2020 is the World Year of the Nurse and Midwife
In 2019, at its 144th session, the Executive Board of the World Health Organization (WHO) designated 2020 as the "Year of the Nurse and Midwife" in honor of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.
In many countries, nurses and midwives account for more than 50% of health workers and also for more than 50% of the global labor shortage. The role of nurses and midwives is a significant part of everyday operation of all health care facilities. On behalf of the General Teaching Hospital, we would like to express our great thanks to the nurses, midwives and all health care professionals who take care of patients in our hospital. We greatly appreciate the work of all healthcare professionals.
This year, among other things, we are preparing for our healthcare professionals:
- January - sister sections
- 20th Prague Haematological Days, January 22 - January 23, 2020,
- 11th Prague Interdisciplinary Oncology Colloquium, January 31, 2020,
- May - Sisters Day, spring conference to thank medical professionals,
- June - traditional Women's Day for our employees
- We will also support the launch of a forthcoming book in honor of Florence Nightingale, which was translated by our colleague, General Nurse Zuzana Mikolášková, DiS.,
- interviews, interesting facts, courses, seminars and news from VFN in our magazine.
