UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital's 19th Perinatal and Neonatal Health Care Conference for Nurses and Allied Health Staff

Pittsburgh, PA US
November 6, 2021

The central role of nursing is achieving high-quality and compassionate care for individuals , families, and communities. The year 2020 was designated the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife to honor and uplift nursing. During that year nurses have witnessed unimaginable circumstances because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The National Academy of Medicine's Report, "The Future of Nursing 2020-2030"' states that the years ahead will require a stronger, more diversified nursing workforce that is prepared to provide high-quality and compassionate care to promote health among patients and communities including care that addresses health disparities. Despite the global pandemic, nursing has stepped up to address these issues. UPMC is proud to present this conference focusing on the patient experience in diverse communities , health disparities, and the health and well-being of the nurse.
