19th South Pacific Nurses Forum | 15th-19th October 2018

The 19th South Pacific Nurses Forum will be held from 15th-19th October 2018 in the Cook Islands and will bring together evidence, experience and innovations highlighting nursing contribution to Universal Health Coverage and demonstrating how nurses are important to ensuring access and quality of health care for all.

The theme of this year's meeting: "Transforming Leadership - Nurses as Change Agents for Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in the Pacific" encourages nurses to take the lead and lead by example to be full partners with other health professionals in redesigning and advancing health care to address the challenge of NCDs. NCDs are the greatest challenge to Pacific people in this 21st century. Nurses need to lead the way in the prevention and management of these conditions to improve the health and reduce the mortality and morbidity of Pacific people.
