Report of the First National Seminar on, “Reshaping Nursing Profession in Indian Hospitals” and First Nursing Core Committee Meeting, Quality Council of India – by Dr. Prof. Jothi Clara J Micheal, Nursing Director @ Global Hospitals and Health City, Chennai
In a modern day-and-age as the present times, the health care industry is making progress in leaps and bounds towards greater standards in providing treatment facilities. And for such innovations to be effective at the bed side we need to equip the nurses with advanced knowledge and competence in a manner such that they will be able to prove themselves.
An exclusive accreditation within the nursing domain is Magnet Status, which is one of its kind gaining rapid momentum in the developed countries. In India, it is the right time to rise to the occasion as Nursing is entering into a new phase and to jointly put our hands together to give nursing profession a proud legacy and heritage. Such accreditation process within Nursing in the Indian context is felt necessary by the Global Group of Hospitals. Being one among the NABH certified youngest hospitals, GHHC extrapolated resources from Quality Council of India (QCI), NABH, reputed institutions and their eminent nursing leaders across India and The Tamil Nadu Nurses and Midwives Council and initiated a platform to bring visibility for clinical nursing profession.
Keeping these thoughts in mind and to convert dreams to achievable goals, Dr. K Ravindranath, Chairman and Managing Director, Global Group of Hospitals, Dr. R V Karanjekar, Executive Director, Medical services, Global Group of Hospitals, Chairman, Accreditation Committee, NABH, Chairperson, Nursing Core Committee, Quality Council of India and Dr. Jothi Clara, Nursing Director, GHHC in collaboration with member representatives from QCI and other eminent nurse leaders, educators, administrators from health care organizations, hospitals and educational institutions in India, hosted its First National Seminar on, “Reshaping Nursing Profession in Indian Hospitals,” on January 6th, 2011 at 10:00am, Auditorium, Global Hospitals and Health City, Chennai.
