[Symposium Presentation] Objective: To highlight the challenges in collecting reliable and valid data in a worldwide survey. Method: The survey mechanism was designed to catch the five key areas, establishing a global baseline based on uniform indicators, tracking progress and evaluating the impact and achievements of interventions to improve nursing and midwifery. The survey was sent electronically and/or by hard copy to the 192 Member States of the WHO and in collaboration with the WHO's Regional Nursing Advisors. Each Member State was asked to complete a survey while the Regional Office was asked to complete a survey indicating the progress towards achieving the MDGs. These surveys will be repeated again. Findings: Although data collection is continuing, it is found that many departments in ministries of Health and Education as well as provider associations are needed to complete the data collection forms. In total, 97 countries have been able to muster resources to complete or partially complete the main survey. We found that some respondents had technical difficulty with receiving the surveys as well as returning their responses. With the aid of the Regional Nursing Advisors, there is a continual reminder to those who have not responded to do so. Outcomes: The data in these surveys can be used as a benchmark to assess progress towards ensuring the nursing and midwifery workforce have achieve their objectives and improving nursing and midwifery proposed by resolution WHA 54.12.
