A review by the All-Party Group on Global Health which will look specifically at how the UK can contribute to the development of nurses and nursing globally. The agreement of the Sustainable Development Goals last year means that there will be an even greater demand for health workers globally. This will put particular pressure on nurses who carry the greatest burden of care and treatment throughout the world. In light of this, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health is undertaking a review of nursing globally with support from the Royal College of Nursing. It will look at how nursing needs to develop globally - addressing such issues as education, recruitment, retention, role definition and regulation - as well as considering, numbers of nurses, capacity and finances.
