Event details

The World Innovation Summit for Health and the Nursing Now Challenge, along with academic partners The BMJ, join forces to celebrate the launch of the following publications – How the nursing profession should adapt for a digital future; Nursing’s pivotal role in global climate action; and Nurses for Health Equity. Participants will discuss the key issues highlighted in these publications and provide the opportunity for early-career nurse leaders to engage in conversation and debate with the authors and other high-level policymakers.

This event will also provide the platform for the launch of two challenges as part of the Nursing Now Challenge Global Solutions Initiative. The winners of these challenges will receive a prize of $1,000 to develop their solution.
