Nurses and midwives are at the forefront of global efforts to improve and enhance healthcare delivery with the goal of addressing the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Nurses and midwives work across diverse healthcare settings and community settings and are uniquely positioned to lead on, and contribute to, the achievement of the SDGs and transform global healthcare. This conference brought together leaders on this topic to showcase cutting edge research and clinical practice initiatives that demonstrate nursing and midwifery thought leadership in the development of sustainable health systems and services, with global reach and local impact. Following the conference their will be a Sigma European Dublin statement on sustainability and nursing with a thought to persuing a resolution status at the next Sigma Biennial Conference in 2023.
Reflections on the conference.
Dr Kenneth Dion President Sigma
I enjoyed to conference because of the diversity of topics, speakers, and attendee. The many different perspectives from which sustainability was presented allowed the attendee to clearly see the linkages between many different issues that have implications for sustainability of the profession. And, how the sustainability of the profession and our actions are linked to the sustainability of the planet and human race. I personally appreciated the size of the conference. There were the perfect number of attendees to assure a diversity of perspectives while providing a high level of intimacy. There was not a speaker or attendee, which I did not have the opportunity to interact with. On a personal note, the theme of the conference aligned perfectly with the Organization Call to Action. I know this was serendipitous as the theme was chosen well prior to the Call. I am appreciative of that serendipity as I ingested a great deal of knowledge I can now use to further support the call to action. I honestly cannot think of a thing I would have changed. I look forward to attending the ERC in Bournemouth in 2024.
Liz Madigan: CEO Sigma.
The conference ignited conversations and ideas among the attendees because of the ability to network.
The focus on partnerships and sustainability is critical to nurses and our contributions to the SDGs. Thank you for all for making this conference such a success.
