International Nurses Day: driving innovation through Patient Engagement

Nurses, a force for change: improving health systems’ resilience.” If you haven’t heard, this is the theme wisely chosen by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) for the celebration of International Nurses Day 2016. The aim is to encourage nurses to strengthen health systems by making them aware that their daily practices and decisions have a strong influence on them, not only locally but also internationally.

Initiate the change

As one of the essential aspects of a strong and resilient health system is based on a collaborative and effective patient-nurse relationship, Connecting Nurses, supported by Sanofi’s Patient Centricity Unit, decided to highlight its key-topic for IND 2016: patient empowerment and the crucial role that play nurses in that process.

Thanks to its platform “Care Challenge”, Connecting Nurses enables nurses to be the force for change by publishing their ideas to improve the daily lives of their patients and peers. You can discover all these inspiring and innovative projects right on Care Challenge Platform.

Want to be part of the change? International Nurses Day 2016 is a fantastic opportunity to share your ideas on Care Challenge platform. Share your own patient empowerment project today!
