DOHA: To mark International Nurses Day, Filipino occupational health nurses in Qatar will organise a meeting on May 29 at the Doha Grand Hotel, the highlight of which will be a lecture by an expert.

Willard Amper, president of Occupational Health Nurses Association of the Philippines --Qatar Chapter (OHNAP-Qatar), said the expert will be discussing ‘International Patient Safety Goals’ during her talk at the meeting.

International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, who is widely considered the founder of modern nursing.

Amper said new members of OHNAP-Qatar are expected to attend the meeting since they want to be updated about new trends in their profession. He added that their group was formed to raise professional nursing standards through continuing education and social service.

Two guests from the Philippine Women’s University’s College of Nursing, Dr Jose Gonzales and Dr Celeste Dimaculangan, are expected to grace the event, where they will make a presentation on the university’s distance education programme.

The OHNAP-Qatar has about 30 active members but more people have expressed interest in joining the organisation. The OHNAP-Qatar has been holding such events for the past six years, which has helped its members upgrade their expertise. Apart from value-addition training, the nurses’ group has also been extending community services to residents. The group has been carrying out a medical outreach programme for skilled workers living in the industrial area, where it conducts free check ups for blood pressure and blood sugar.
