Courageous about Equality and Bold about Inclusion

Published: 01/08/2017
Publication code: 006212

Equality, inclusion, diversity and human rights provide a foundation for a modern and forward looking profession where nurses, health care support workers, and students, regardless of the sector that they work in or their field of practice, can continue to transform their working environments and the care they deliver to patients. This new equality and inclusion strategy will enable us to scope, plan and begin delivery in new priority areas that will become increasingly important for our members in the coming years and beyond.
