Nurses - Diamonds of Diversity Strengthening Bonds           

This broad theme arose from the wide variety of topics you requested on the 2017 conference evaluation forms.  Thankyou for your feedback.   

The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique and recognizing our individual differences. It acknowledges that we as nurses not only understand each other but also our patients; moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions contained within each individual.

Diversity in a nursing or healthcare team brings together a broad knowledge base and specialty talents, to be used and shared in a collective manner to benefit patient care.  Diamonds are multifaceted, enabling great depth to be exposed on numerous levels. Once cut and polished their true quality is revealed. Diamond is renowned for its superlative physical qualities which originate from strong bonds.                                                             

Nurses and midwives using a holistic approach provide the bonds which galvanize both the family and multidisciplinary health care team. We are the integral link between all within our communities, supporting the individual on a multitude of levels.  Capable of weathering the storms of constant change with resilience; never losing sight of the bonds that bring us together.                                                                                                                                                
The Women’s Health College committee have put together a multifaceted conference for you. Come and enjoy we look forward to seeing you.                                                                

Why not consider taking extra time to enjoy the beautiful province of Marlborough gateway to the Marlborough Sounds. Bring your partner and stay awhile.
