Wonderful nurses...always! And the latest ICPCN news bulletin
E... PARABÉNS A TODOS OS MEUS AMIGOS
This news bulletin is brought to you by the International Children's Palliative Care
Network. Keeping you up to date and informed on issues related to children's
palliative care from around the globe.
Acknowledging the role of nurses in children's palliative care
Monday 12 May is International Nurses Day. Nurses form the backbone of
children's palliative care services in many countries and are always there to
share the ups and downs of the journey with the children they care for and
their families. An American nurse practitioner, Christine Bell, sums up the role
of a nurse beautifully when she says: Our job as nurses is to cushion the
sorrow and celebrate the joy every day, while we are 'just doing our jobs'.
ICPCN would like to take this opportunity to honour and acknowledge all those
wonderful nurses who work in children's palliative care and thank them for their
compassion, expertise and love.
