United Nurses

I HAVE A DREAM:INFERMIERI uniti nell’ interesse dei cittadini in piena collaborazione con altre professioni per offrire una risposta eccellente ai bisogni di salute!

Le possibilità di sviluppare un lavoro di equipe si fondano primariamente su un’adeguata formazione e la conoscenza approfondita delle varie professioni presenti nel team e delle altrui competenze. 

In questo modo diviene anche più facile affrontare una condizione clinica instabile, una situazione sanitaria complessa, che richiede continui adattamenti e quindi l’intervento non sempre prevedibile di professionalità diverse.

Coach yourself!

We are the only one who has the key to access these great mysteries. We must coach ourselves, revealing the capabilities and the potentialities of each of us. We accompany us on the path of transformation, bringing to a higher level of awareness our aspirations, our dreams and helping us outline the way to achieve our goals. The tools are inside of each one.

Love yourself for what you are, be compassionate first to yourself and then to others. As Louise Hay, mother of positive thinking says, the words we use to describe our experiences, create our reality. It is better then to choose positive and powerful beliefs and to abandon the spiral of negative and dysfunctional thoughts, which do not help us in any way!
Compared to the experience of my life, this is what I think: stay with people who improve you!

Birth of Cardiac Massage

Knickerbocker, assistant in surgery, who conducted studies on defibrillation in dogs, found that placement of electrodes alone caused an increase in femoral arterial pressure. This observation made the idea that the circulation could be maintained artificially with cardiac massage. 
It was a revolutionary discovery: no need to “open the chest” for a direct cardiac massage! Be wrote in the article of 1960, “… anyone and everywhere can initiate resuscitation procedures. We need two hands. ”

Two hands can save life!

Nurses and health promotion more than thirty years from Ottawa’s card

More than thirty years after the Ottawa Charter was drafted, nurses strongly emphasize the importance of promoting health through their activities.Health is an essential asset for social, economic and personal development, and is a key aspect of quality of life. Health promotion, theorized concept in various historical epochs, was coded in 1986 by the Ottawa Charter.

It is not possible to gain maximum health potential if you are unable to control the determinants of health. Nurses’ commitment is focused on the development of policies aimed at promoting and preserving the health of citizens.

Gli infermieri e la promozione della salute a distanza di più di trent’anni dalla carta di Ottawa

A distanza di più di trent’anni dalla stesura della Carta di Ottawa gli infermieri sottolineano con forza attraverso le loro attività l’importanza della promozione della salute.
La salute è un bene essenziale per lo sviluppo sociale, economico e personale, ed è aspetto fondamentale della qualità della vita. La promozione della salute, concetto teorizzato in varie epoche storiche, è stato codificato nel 1986 dalla Carta di Ottawa.
Non è possibile conquistare il massimo potenziale di salute se non si è in grado di controllare i fattori determinanti della salute. L’ impegno degli infermieri è orientato allo sviluppo di politiche orientate alla promozione e conservazione della salute dei cittadini.
