“Every year, on International Nurses Day, the Volga Federal District organizes a session on nurse management. Earlier, these events took place in Nizhny Novgorod. On the most recent gathering there, its participants offered to expand the geography of the event to learn more about the healthcare system, the nurse practices in various regions. Ours was suggested, we accepted, and now the guests are visiting us,” Tatyana Ryzhonina, chief nurce of the Burdenko Penza regional clinical hospital, informed PenzaNews agency.
She added that one of the guests is Dr. Varpu Lipponen, M.D., nurse expert, professor, who has been cooperating with the Burdenko regional hospital since 2011. She will share her experience in palliative care with the Russian specialists.
“Palliative care is already developing in the Penza region: the oncology treatment center has already opened several nursery wards, as well as the psychiatry hospital and the regional clinical hospital: these are intended to be used by the patients who do not need any professional medical attention but require the care of a nurse,” the speaker explained.
The first day of the conference will host a discussion on middle-level medical staff education, Tatyana Ryzhonina clarified, saying that was the reason why most of the Volga Federal District professionals in this year’s gathering are directors of career development centers.
“They will share their experience during a roundtable discussion. In their turn, our colleagues will help our guests learn about our career education and schools for new specialists. Moreover, the event will feature research reports on nursing that come from our city’s medical institutions,” Tatyana Ryzhonina concluded.
