Become a Voice to Lead
More than any other health profession, nurses spend the most time with patients and their families and have firsthand knowledge of the stories that have an impact on the health and wellbeing of patients.
Every nurse has a story and every story has the potential to improve the health system and enable individuals and communities to achieve their highest attainable standard of health. From these insights comes the power for change.
Policy makers are distanced from the requirements that make an effective and people-centred health system; to them it is peripheral. To nurses, it is the daily lived experience.
The right to the highest attainable standard of health requires nursing insight to challenge how the system works and how it can be improved.
