  • Bournemouth University nurse students learn about GAPFON

    Desi Tait (Faculty Counsellor) and Janet Scammell (President) facilitated two interactive lectures for first year nursing students in early December entitled 'Nurses leading the way in global health'.  We explored the international healthcare context using the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  Drawing on the DAPFON model and the six professional issues identified, we then considered the role of nurses in advancing world health on the global stage and explored the role of Sigma in this endeavour.
