ANNUAL REPORT 2019
Our CC completed the NAR Study – Nurses in Advanced Roles as a strategy for equitable access to health care in the Western Pacific Region (WPR). This multi-country study was done in conjunction with WHO CC in the WPR, a total of 13 partner institutions across 8 countries. It consisted of three phases: a descriptive survey (18 experts from 10 countries), a Delphi survey (19 experts from 13 countries), and exploratory interviews (18 experts from 11 countries). Findings were presented at the 2018 Yonsei International Nursing Conference, Nov 30, 2018, as 2018 marked the 30th anniversary of our WHO CC.
