Abstract:
Purpose: To address the need for an international coalition of neonatal nurses (COINN), examining how that group can simultaneously address unmet clinical needs of women and children in the developing world and influence international economic and health policies Background: 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. Design: A conceptual model and empirical data will be presented showing why it is necessary that COINN, and groups actually addressing unmet clinical needs, be fully integrated into the international policy making process. 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 and address global issues; which affect the health and well-being of women and children. Significance: 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 and provide innovative ways of addressing vulnerable populations. Health care providers can work collaboratively to positively alter the life and health of women and children.
