Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs. Source: CMHA

Happy National Nursing Week!
May 7, 2018

May 7th to 13th is National Nursing Week and the opportunity to celebrate the wonderful nurses at the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance who go above and beyond to care for patients and families at their most vulnerable time with compassion, care and professionalism.

This week draws attention to nurses, increasing the awareness of the public, policy-makers and governments of the many contributions of nursing to the well-being of Canadians. In 1971, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) designated May 12, the birthday of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale, as International Nurses Day. In 1985, CNA members passed a resolution to begin negotiations with the federal government to have the week containing May 12 proclaimed as National Nurses Week annually. Soon after, the federal minister of health proclaimed the second week of May as National Nurses Week. In 1993, the name was changed to National Nursing Week to emphasize the profession's accomplishments as a discipline.

A heartfelt thank you to the largest workforce in the Alliance caring for patients and families in a variety of roles 24/7, 365 days of the year in direct patient care in acute care, continuing complex care and rehabilitation, occupational health and safety, infection control, stroke prevention information technology and mammography. Our nurses are mental health and addictions specialists, nurse practitioners, educators, team leaders, lactation consultants, wound care specialists, nurse champions, quality improvement specialists, managers, directors, and volunteers. Across the Alliance, nurses support teamwork and collaboration in an interprofessional practice environment to provide exceptional care, always.
