Primary Responsibility of Nurses is Prevention

Prof Irene Veigas, Principal of Sahyadri College of Nursing, Mangalore asserted that prevention is the primary responsibility of nurses in case of chronic care. Prof Veigas stated that the chief reasons behind chronic illnesses are fundamental, global and societal changes, economic changes and rapid urbanization.

Te program was organized jointly by Manipal College of Nursing, Manipal, Manipal School of Nursing and Nursing Service Department of Kasturba Hospital, Manipal. Prof Veigas delivered a speech on this occasion which marked the International Nurses Day Program, which was held on Friday stating that millennium goals should be set, achieved and maintained to check chronic illnesses.

According to Pro Chacellor of Manipal University, Dr. H. S. Ballal, nurses are the frontline care givers who can serve as the best marketing people for any hospital through their quality services and that patients do discuss about the quality of nursing care they receive. Nurses are almost equivalent to medical professionals.

Dr. Rajshekaran Warrier, the Vice Chancellor of the University asserted that nurses in Kasturba hospital are good and knowledgeable. Indian nurses should be exposed to different specialties like nurse clinician, nurse anesthetist and most important of all to the palliative nursing program. He further added that the professional dignity and identity of the nurses should be built up and sustained.
