THE ESNO DECLARATION 2024

Elaborating on the Role of Specialist Nurses and Advanced Level in European Healthcare Towards 2030

This report is a result of a full year consultation with ESNO constituencies and partner organisation and discussed during a range of ESNO event. This was launched during the ESNO event in the EU parliament 10 October 2024. This report stresses the importance of these elements to enable a positive move towards the recognition of the specialist nurse profession in the European context as a key instrument on the retention, to the background of nurse shortage and outflow of healthcare professionals. Additionally, the report will focus on other aspects and obstacles that the European healthcare workforce and specialist nurses currently face.

HOW TO READ A SCIENTIFIC PAPER FOR NURSES

The leadership of specialist nurses is undoubtedly present in the health sectors but is not sufficiently translated into policy and science. Healthcare professionals need to be trained and educated before they can carry out patient care. In the same way, reading scientific and medical publications needs a basic level of knowledge of the methodology of writing papers, to allow analysis of the validity of the data in an objective way. Also, understanding the elements on which the evidence is built allows us to acquire the skills to carry out our own research. The European macro-environment opens up important opportunities to exchange and share different professional cultures and to identify best practice. This guide provides a good insight about the ins and outs of science, on the reading and writing and above all to include this in clinical practice.

PROGRAM BOOK CAMPAIGN 
'DECADE OF THE SPECIALIST NURSE 2020-2030'

Mobirise


ESNO is proud to publish the foundation of this Campaign, the outcome of a long process of events, which began during the ‘Year of the Nurse’ 2020 when the COVID pandemic, a culmination of a series of dramas that swept across European and hit the nursing profession hard, hurting its  very foundation. However, the foundation did not crack. Instead, it became the foundation of discovering courage and strength, built on resilience and gained science. In short, this pandemic did not break us, but only made us stronger.  However, this strength is sustainable only when it is strongly gathered up to create a new direction. This new direction requires time and support from all corners, not only nursing. This book sets out the road ahead of us with impressive programs and, finally, contributes to the quality of care, patient safety, and the recognition of our profession. It showcases its beauty and results in the retention and the attractiveness of the nursing profession.

COMPETENCE PROFILE FOR NURSES IN PLASMA DONATION CENTRES

This competence profile has been designed to evolve over time. It is based on the current specific needs of plasma collection centers in Europe with regard to their operations. There is an urgency to create a competence profile for nurses in plasma collection centers so that nurses can not only provide greater support to physicians but also perform specific tasks when needed. The profile as described meets the essential aspects for nurses’ competence to act according to minimum standards.

ABOUT THE SURVEY
ON NURSES AND VACCINATION

During this unprecedented year in relation to the Corona-virus pandemic, our attention has focused on viral and other infectious diseases, and especially on vaccination. On top of this, there is also concern about nurses’ personal uptake of the influenza vaccination ‘with opinions being expressed without having heard the nurse’s voice‘. ESNO is a strong advocate and promoter of nursing knowledge and competencies related to infectious disease transmission and vaccination, but we are also interested in whether this contributes to your personal decision on vaccination uptake. In this survey we learned about personal motivation related to influenza vaccination and when available, the Corona-virus vaccination, and how this relates to Specialist Nurses professional activity and training needs. 

MODULE GUIDES TO ANTI-MICROBIAL RESISTANCE, VACCINATION AND INFECTION CONTROL

ESNO developed a Nurses Information and Communication Guides on Microbes published in 2021. The guides provide information and support optimal communication around topics such as vaccination, anti microbial resistance and infection prevention and control. For the full project, click HERE.
