Are you interested in making nursing sustainable? Are you a healthcare professional, patient, student, academic or someone else with a vested interest in sustainability?
The Green Nurse Network, hosted by the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare, is an online community for nurses, students, nurse educators and retired nurses from across the globe who take the threats from climate change seriously and wish to work together to establish what this means for nursing practice.
The network allows members to share practice and resources, to discuss ideas and work together to improve the environmental impact of nursing. Please get involved and join the community.
Mission statement: To share evidence-based knowledge on sustainable practice and empower measurable, sustainable improvement within nursing care, so that the future of care may benefit from our actions today.
- Deliver events throughout the year focusing on developments within sustainable nursing care and facilitate networking opportunities through accessible communication channels.
- Encourage the sharing of sustainability-related quality improvement projects, with an emphasis on the measurement of quality outcomes, such as carbon-footprint measurements.
- Co-ordinate efforts with networks within and beyond CSH, so that best practice and research opportunities are equitably shared with our members (this means working with the likes of the Florence Nightingale Foundation, NHS Sustainability and the Nuffield Health in order to benefit from shared knowledge).
- Encourage and facilitate international nursing collaboration on matters of healthcare.
