Emirati nurses participated in an International Nursing Congress in Melbourne.

United Arab Emirates, Dubai, May 30, 2013: Nurses from the Dubai Health Authority nurses recently took part in the 25th Quadrennial Congress of the International Council of Nurses (ICN) at Melbourne.

The congress took place under the theme “Equity and Access to Health Care”. From the DHA, four Emirati Nurses from Rashid Hospital took part in the congress.

The Conference provided opportunities to disseminate nursing knowledge and leadership across specialties, cultures and countries. Emirati nurses presented several papers and a poster which was well received by the international nursing community. More than 5000 delegates from 133 nations were present this year at the ICN - Melbourne.

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) is a federation of more than 130 national nurses associations (NNAs), representing more than 13 million nurses worldwide of which Emirates Nurses Association (ENA) is a member. It is the world's first and widest reaching international organization for health professionals.

Ms. Naeema Mohd Rajab, the lead for DHA Emirati nurses team, who recently graduated from the Leadership for Change (LFC) program in collaboration with ICN, participated in a symposium along with her fellow Emirati nurses from the Ministry of Health (MOH) to present their final graduation project.

Ms. Fatima Khalifa Al Noman presented her poster under the title of job satisfaction among nurses at Rashid hospital and participated in the Nationalization among GCC symposium with other fellow members from the UAE, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar.

“Embracing diversity or care with adversity” was a paper that was presented at a symposium by Ms. Naeema Mohd, Fatima K. Al Noman, Fatima Ibrahim and Manal Essa.

Essa also presented a paper called “V.I.P Syndrome”

This was the second time that DHA Emirati nurses participated and presented at this prestigious international event. The team extended their appreciation to HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in her capacity as Chair of the UAE Nursing & Midwifery Council, and HE Engineer Essa Al Maidoor, Director General of the Dubai Health Authority and Dr. Khalil Qayed, Director of Medical Education Department.

Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare system. Representation of Emirati nurses at ICN will definitely create a better and positive image and understanding of the profession within the UAE. This achievement will open doors to attract more Emiratis into the nursing profession.
