Nurses in su­per­vi­sory and man­age­ment roles have been re­minded to per­form their du­ties with ut­most pas­sion and em­pa­thy. Min­is­ter for Health and Med­i­cal Ser­vices, Rosy Ak­bar made th­ese re­marks at the Nurs­ing Su­per­vi­sors and Man­age­ment Sym­po­sium in Suva yes­ter­day. The min­is­ter com­mended the work of nurses es­pe­cially dur­ing Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston and en­cour­aged them to con­tinue pro­vid­ing the best sup­port and care to all Fi­jians. Ms Ak­bar added that there is still room for im­prove­ments as far as health ser­vice de­liv­ery is con­cerned. “As lead­ers in your roles you need to mo­ti­vate, in­spire and guide those who re­port to you so that you are able to meet the vi­sion and the mis­sion of the Min­istry. “You need to serve with com­pas­sion, ded­i­ca­tion, and dili­gence be­cause you have been en­trusted to de­liver essen­tial health ser­vices for the ben­e­fit of our na­tion,” she said.

She also re­it­er­ated for nurses to go above and beyond the call of duty to en­sure pa­tients re­ceive the best health care. The Min­istry has so far re­cruited 230 nurses while 251 po­si­tions are ex­pected to be filled by Jan­uary next year.
