Abstract

This report provides a brief introduction to Geneva and its many international organisations and aims to share some of the insights gained during discussions held with various key persons at the World Health Organisation (WHO), the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the International Nursing Review (INR), the official journal of the International Nursing Council. Many new insights were obtained which affect the health care professions globally, but specifically the nurses and midwives. One important aspect that came to our attention repeatedly was the necessity for the nurses and midwives to justify the importance and relevance of their roles within multidisciplinary health care teams. Research priorities, especially for postgraduate nurses and midwives, should address multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborative approaches to community and family health, incorporating community participation. The visit to the International Committee of the Red Cross centered on the HELP (Health Emergencies in Large Populations) course being offered by this institution. Much information about the working philosophies of the International Nursing Review was obtained during the visit to these offices.

Hierdie verslag verskaf 'n bondige oorsig oor Geneva se baie internasionale organisasies en poog om sommige gewaarvordinge weer te gee wat verkry is tydens besprekings met sleutelpersone verbonde aan die Wêreld Gesonheids Organisasie (IVGO), die Internasionale Komitee van die Rooi Kruis, en die International Nursing Review, die amptelike joernaal vir die Internasionale Verpleegstersraad (IVR). Baie nuwe insigte is verkry wat betrekking het op die globale gesondheidsorg professies maar spesifiek op die verpleegkundiges en vroedvroue. Een uiters belangrike aspek waarvan ons bewus geraak het, is die herhaalde beklemtoning van die noodsaaklikheid vir vroedvroue en verpleegkundiges om die belangrikheid en tersaaklikheid van hulle rolle binne multi-dissiplinêre gesondheidsorgspanne te bewys. Navorsingsprioriteite, veral vir nagraadse verpleegkundiges en vroedvrone, behoort om multi-dissiplinêre en inter-dissiplinêre samewerkingsbenaderings tot gemeenskaps- en gesinsgesondheid te beklemtoon, wat gemeenskapsdeelname insluit.
