World Youth International are proud to announce we are partnering with Australian Healthcare Week 2020, supporting the Nursing and Midwifery Expo in celebration of our International Year of the Nurse and Midwife initiatives.
Australian Healthcare Week is the largest healthcare event in Australia, bringing together over 7,000 healthcare professionals under the one roof. Celebrating their 10th Birthday in 2020, Australian Healthcare Week is returning to the International Convention Centre in Sydney on the 25 - 26 March 2020 and is all about continuously improving our hospitals and workforce for the future. This year, Australian Healthcare Week will be running 6 FREE TO ATTEND on-floor programs, including the Nursing and Midwifery Theatre, which is endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing and offers attendees 12 CPD Points.
Our Nursing Ambassador Helen Zahos will be speaking at the event. Helen is a Humanitarian, Emergency Nurse and Paramedic who has volunteered in disaster areas around the world, caring for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. She recently spent a month in Kenya on our Nurses In Action Volunteer Program.
“According to the World Health Organisation, the world needs 9 million more nurses and midwives if it is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. Educating the next generation of nurses and midwives is vital in ensuring vulnerable communities have access to quality healthcare,” said Helen.
“By caring for some of the world’s most vulnerable people in Kenya, alongside Kenyan Nurses and Midwives, I learnt more than what I could physically give, particularly due to the lack of medical supplies, equipment and facilities. I often couldn’t escalate care due to the limitations of the available equipment, and this was heartbreaking.”
Helen’s presentation will highlight the challenges of delivering healthcare in a Humanitarian Aid setting, the disparities, and the impact of sustainable projects developed and delivered by Australian Nurses to vulnerable communities within this setting.
World Youth International’s partnership with Australian Healthcare Week 2020 aligns with our aim to educate and empower Nurses on a global scale, inspiring positive change where its most needed.
“Healthcare Week’s Nursing and Midwifery Expo and Speakers will be focusing on empowering Nurses to be change leaders. Through our Nurses In Action program, we can not only increase access to healthcare but also share the knowledge and skills to build the capacity of Nurses in Australia as well as in the vulnerable communities we work within,” said Terry Hoey, General Manager, World Youth International.
