Title:
Council of International Neonatal Nurses (CINN): An International Collaborative Partnership
Abstract:
Council of International Neonatal Nurses (CINN): An International Collaborative Partnership
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Kenner, Carole, DNS, RNC, FAAN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Illinois at Chicago
Title:Associate Dean/Professor
Overview of the problem: There are vast inequities in neonatal/maternal health outcomes, worldwide. These inequities can be addressed with appropriate neonatal nursing interventions. Neonatal/maternal health outcomes are global issues with serious implications for the economic, political, and educational infrastructure of developing nations. No nation can sustain poor neonatal and/or maternal health outcomes and have improved economic and social development. Educating, training, and assisting nurses to improve neonatal health outcomes are important first steps in assisting nations in their overall development efforts. With the growing reliance on electronic media, the world of neonatal nursing knows no boundaries. Established neonatal associations and those countries where there are few designated neonatal nurses can band together to promote excellence. Determining the need: Focus groups were held at two international meetings to determine the need for neonatal nurses worldwide to form an international council to influence health policy. Councils Goals: CINN’s goals are to: represent neonatal health globally, help countries develop standards of neonatal nursing care that are culturally sensitive, develop guidelines for care using our existing ones as templates, promote best practices globally, disseminate fact sheets on common neonatal problems, and develop health policy. Progress to date: The formation of CINN has begun. We are looking for ways to work with WHO to work on policy issues that will address neonatal nursing issues. A grant proposal has been submitted to bring together groups from developed and developing countries, to set priorities on this work.
