The purpose of this event is to recognise men’s contribution to nursing at LSBU and within our local NHS to celebrate nursing careers for men as well as acknowledging some of the challenges men face. The personal journeys of prominent men in nursing will be presented as well as exploring the research and data on an international, national, and local level.
The importance of positive attitudes and strong role models to support men to access nursing careers will be debated. This year’s theme for International Men’s Day 2021 centres around better relations between men & women and improving gender relations. This event is very much open to all and not limited to men who are in nursing only but all who are committed to working together.
