NMCH: Paediatric Nursing – Practice and Education Conference 2019

We are pleased to invite you to the inaugural Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital (NMCH)’s PAEDIATRIC NURSING – PRACTICE AND EDUCATION CONFERENCE.

In line with its theme, “Strengthen Coordination and Collaboration to Improve Health Outcomes of Children,” NMCH has partnered with USAID and the Maternal and Child Survival Program to bring together industry leaders and practitioners to provide insights into Clinical Excellence, Leadership and Social Support initiatives in caring for our children and families.

We remain committed in putting aside competition and promote sharing successes and failures, so that we can focus on what matters most – caring for our children! In all that we do leadership matters – executive leadership is a critical aspect of successful improvement in our delivery of care to our patients and families. We learn through testing and partnering with families and front-line staff
