Leading the way: Nurses and midwives for a safe, healthy and peaceful world


The 4th Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Conference will take place on the 10th and 11th March 2018 at the Royal College of Physicians, Regent's Park London. The topic of the conference is, 'Leading the way: Nurses and midwives for a safe, healthy and peaceful world

Conference 2018
The 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.
