4th Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Conference 2018
Our world today is far from being safe, healthy or peaceful. Many countries are experiencing war or civil conflict; there are more refugees than ever before seeking a safe place to live for themselves and their families; bush fires, floods, earthquakes and tsunamis are a frequent occurrence; diseases such as Ebola and Zika threaten health and stability; climate change threatens entire populations. Nurses and midwives are in a unique position to act as role models and lead the way in promoting a safe, healthy and peaceful world.
The 4th Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Conference will provide an opportunity for nurses and midwives to share their work with colleagues across the world.

Working with older people, young people, adolescents or children; people with mental health issues or other disabilities; in health education; or primary health care settings.
