Strengthening and Institutionalizing the Leadership and Management Role of Frontline Nurses in Zambia (2)
Dear Neil, this is important that our frontliners are thier rightful postions in championing primary health and universal health coverage and technology. In most parts of rural areas, management of healthcare is managed competinty [competently] by them. As a matter of fact they handle coomplicated cases. I have closely worked with most them in providing and guiding them on research. I have presented papers with them in Zambia and parts of the world especially those who did postbasic nursing @ the university of Zambia. There the leading role in training community workers is in the right direction.
Please keep it up to realise the Nightingale philosophy.
