Nursing and Midwifery Day 2021
Programme of Events
Celebrating Our Nurses and Midwives, 12th May 2021
The World health Organisation declared 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife in recognition of the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale.
2020 was also the year of a global health crisis. The Covid19 pandemic increased pressure on our health and social care services like never before, and it was our role to prevent further spread and protect those most at risk.
Nurses and midwives were instrumental in the response. Leadership, innovation and clinical expertise saw you continue to work and live, doing what was needed to support our patients and colleagues, and well as your own friends and family.
We invite you to join colleagues on 12th May for a day of virtual celebration, reflection and focus on wellbeing 14 months after the declaration of the pandemic by the WHO.
Guest speakers and international contributions will reflect back on the last year and recognise the integral role of nursing and midwifery during this time.
The programme has been designed to be flexible and fit around peoples work and personal commitments.
Each session has its own online MS Teams or Zoom link which you can find in our programme – this means you can pick and choose the sessions you want to join live on the day!
We will record as many of the sessions as we can – come back to these pages for the videos after the event.
For all you need to know about the event on 12th May, including links to our sessions, please see the programme brochure.
