International Nurses Day
A voice to lead
The 57th anniversary of International Nurse's Day comes with the theme "Invest and respect rights to secure global health."
Watching my mum dedicate the majority of her working life to being a nurse, I've witnessed first-hand what it's like to see someone on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. My biggest takeaway from this is the amount of strength and compassion it takes for nurses to fulfil their role.
This year's theme highlights the importance of investing in our frontline health workers, not only with direct financial incentives and education but also by providing them with more support and services throughout their careers. Personally, I never thought I'd be working alongside the health care and aged care industries. Funnily enough, here I am at Dominant during an exciting time for the business as it too, invests itself to secure its future within these important industries.
Working so closely with all the different levels of staff in aged and health care, and meeting and managing their concerns can be challenging. Our aim is to provide sufficient training and knowledge on the correct use of our products and equipment safely, such that the staff on-site can feel confident and safe in our products, and in turn, pass that safety and confidence onto their clients, residents and patients.
As a society, the most important thing we can do is help by investing more into our health care sectors by assisting and protecting those who, without them, the industries would not exist.
