Nurses told to become role models
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
MELAYU Islam Beraja (MIB) must be defined and given “true meaning” in relation to ethical nursing practices in the country, according to the resolutions of the Second National Nursing Conference.
The conference which presented eight working papers, was themed around utilising MIB to achieving nursing excellence and concluded with eleven resolutions, presented at a dinner ceremony held at the Centerpoint Hotel in Gadong.
Nurses have been advised to internalise MIB as daily practice in treating patients, becoming role models that can foster the national philosophy amongst patients and the public.
Head of the MIB Supreme Council Dr Hj Muhammad Hadi Muhammad Melayong, added that the papers presented should be published as a book, to be used as reference materials by officers and staff in field on medicine, as well as the public.
The Minister of Health, Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Johan Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Adanan Begawan Pehin Siraja Khatib Dato Seri Setia Hj Mohd Yusof, attended the dinner yesterday, handing out certificates of participation and appreciation to the delegates, which included nurses from private and government sector.
