Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Force 10: A Community of Caring Without Borders Winchester Hospital's community prescience is seen in a variety of outreach programs. In the spirit of the Magnet Culture, the Winchester Hospital nurses believe we can positively impact our community-local and global- by providing funds to nurses caring for patients in environments with inadequate resources. Our Magnet Nurses Charitable Fund allows nurses, physicians, and other hospital employees to give in a meaningful way and directly impact the health of our local and world community. The International Council of Nurses, Merck Mobile Library was the first recipient of the Magnet Nurses Charitable Fund. Three Mobile Libraries were sent from the Winchester Hospital staff to nurses in Malawi, Mauritius, and Seychelles. This partnership with the International Council of Nurses promoted a sisterhood between our nurses and nurses struggling in Africa. The Nursing Association of Mauritius wrote the following in a letter to us: "Thank you for the sponsorship of one of our libraries. This precious support with enables us to further expand and extend the activities of this library for the benefit of a much larger number of nurses and midwives." Our Magnet Nurses Charitable Fund also provided funds to send two of our staff with supplies to work in a clinic in Guatemala. Funds were sent to support nurses post Hurricane Katrina. This year's focus supports the nurses at the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. A partnership with these diverse recipients broadens our knowledge of the scope of nursing practice beyond our borders, and allows us the privilege to make a global impact.
