The following are some ways that health care administrators as well as nurses and midwives can participate in the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife:
WHO suggests giving awards and/or certificates to nurses and midwives to honor their contributions. You can then share photos on social media using #SupportNursesAndMidwives.
Take the Nightingale Challenge.
The Nightingale Challenge asks health care employers to provide leadership training for a group of nurses and midwives this year.
Showcase your DAISY Foundation honorees.
The DAISY Foundation helps to honor nurses, and if your hospital or other health care facility participates in this program, create a wall of honor to showcase your honorees.
Organize public events and meetings
WHO suggests organizing public events and meetings with nurses, midwives, health leaders, patients and others. Nurses and midwives can share their stories on stage or through videos.
Produce and display posters.
WHO also recommends producing and displaying Year of the Nurse and the Midwife posters throughout the community as well as in schools and health care facilities.
