Keynote 3

Swarm Intelligence in Honey Bees

Description

Swarm intelligence is the solving of a cognitive problem by two or more individuals who independently collect information and process it through social interactions. With the right organization, a group can overcome the cognitive limitations of its members and achieve a high collective IQ. To understand how to endow groups with swarm intelligence, it is useful to examine natural systems that have evolved this ability. An excellent example is a swarm of honey bees solving the life-or-death problem of finding a new home. A bee swarm accomplishes this through a process that was discovered at the Zoological Institute of the University of Munich in the 1940s, and that has been analyzed more deeply in recent years. It includes collective fact-finding, open sharing of information, vigorous debating, and fair voting by the hundreds of bees in a swarm that function as nest-site scouts. Thomas Seeley will show how these incredible insects have much to teach us when it comes to achieving collective wisdom and effective group decision making.

Work place culture in health care institutions

Description

The shortage of professionals in the health care system is becoming an increasing problem for Switzerland and other countries. This is the more surprising as there is a high demand for education placement options and that for specific professions there are too few training positions available within the Swiss health care system. A complicating factor is that, many health care workers leave the profession too soon after becoming graduated, on average after 12-20 years. Workplace conditions and culture are frequently mentioned as the driving factors behind the decision to leave. This presentation highlights the importance of a positive workplace culture. It will also review current studies looking at the needs of health care workers and the shortage of professional nursing staff. It takes the perspective of a personal leadership experience within a community and its long-term care institutions; trying to meet the demands of politics as well as unions. The speaker presents her practical and political experience on how to build a positive workplace culture within the context of healthcare recommendations.

Pflegeinitiative SBK

Zwei Strategien für mehr Autonomie und Einfluss: „Pflegeinitiative“ für die Schweiz und „Nursing Now!“ Kampagne für die Welt

Roswitha Koch

Description

Pflegeinitiative: Der Schweizer Berufsverband der Pflegefachfrauen und Pflegefachmänner SBK hat am 7. November 2017, nach nur 8 Monaten Sammelzeit, 120 000 Unterschriften für die Eidgenössische Volksinitiative „Für eine starke Pflege (Pflegeinitiative)“ gesammelt. Falls es keine Verhandlungslösung geben sollte, müssen die Schweizer Stimmbürger darüber abstimmen, ob die Qualität der Pflege in der Verfassung verankert werden soll. Das Ziel ist eine gute Pflegequalität für alle, auch in Zukunft. Aktuell läuft ein politischer Prozess mit Parlament, Regierung und Meinungsmachern. http://www.pflegeinitiative.ch/

Nursing Now! Mehr Einfluss und Autonomie für die Pflegefachpersonen: Das sind zwei wichtige Ziele der weltweiten Kampagne Nursing Now! die Ende Februar zeitgleich in Genf und London lanciert wurde. Die Kampagne richtet sich an Regierungen, Entscheidungsträger im Gesundheitswesen und an uns Pflegefachpersonen. Sie wird persönlich von WHO-Generaldirektor Tedros Adhanom Ghebreysus unterstützt. Die Herzogin von Cambridge, Kate Middleton, Schirmherrin der Kampagne, fordert die Regierungen dazu auf, den Wert der Pflegefachpersonen anzuerkennen.  

Die internationale Kampagne Nursing Now! zielt darauf ab, die Gesundheit zu verbessern, indem das Profil, der Status und der Einfluss der Pflegefachfrauen und Pflegefachmänner in der ganzen Welt gestärkt werden. Sie will die Öffentlichkeit und Politik für die grosse Bedeutung der professionellen Pflege und ihren Beitrag für die globale Gesundheitsversorgung sensibilisieren. Die Kampagne dauert bis 2020 – dem Jahr, indem der 200. Geburtstag von Florence Nightingale gefeiert wird. www.nursingnow.org.


Two strategies for more autonomy and influence: „Nursing Initiative“ for Switzerland and the „Nursing Now!“ global campaign

Nursing Initiative: On 7 November 2017, after a short eight-month effort, the Swiss Nurses Association (ASI-SBK) was able to collect 120 000 signatures for the popular initiative „For Strong Nursing Care” If no negotiated settlement can  be reached, the Swiss citizens will vote on whether the quality of nursing care should be embedded in the Swiss Constitution. The aim is high quality nursing care for all, now and in future. Political proceedings are currently taking place between parliament, the government and opinion leaders. http://www.pflegeinitiative.ch/

Nursing Now! More influence and autonomy for nurses: two important goals of Nursing Now!, the global campaign launched simultaneously in Geneva and London at the end of February. The campaign is directed at governments, health care policy makers and us - nurses. It is supported by WHO General Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreysus personally. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, patron of the campaign, calls on governments to recognise the contribution of nurses.  

The international campaign Nursing Now! seeks to improve health by strengthening the profile, status and influence of nurses all over the world. Its goal is to raise the awareness of the public and politicians to the crucial role of professional nursing and its contribution to global health care provision. The campaign will run until 2020 – when the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale will be celebrated. www.nursingnow.org.
