Thinking Nurse

This blog will reflect my interests in learning disabilities, nursing, nursing theory, philosophy and politics and my general interests in the arts and literature. (Nursing is an art as well as a science!) Philosophy and nursing have been intrinsically linked since the days of Socrates, his mother was a midwife, and taught him everything he knew!

International Nurses Day 12th May

May 12th will be 'International Nurses Day'.
The International Council of Nurses honour this day by raising issues that are important to nurses across the world.

This year they are highlighting the scourge of counterfeit medicines.
You can download their 'ICN International Nurses Day Kit' (a pdf file) here.

Last years kit featured their campaign against poverty. I think it is worth having another look at the excellent pack they produced then: Working With The Poor Against Poverty (ICN 2004)

As I have said before, issues like poverty are vital to health, but often swept under the carpet, as it does not suit those in power to highlight the awful health consequences of the economic systems they defend.
