World Health Worker Week

Did you know that this week has been World Health Worker Week? Unfortunately, despite being networked with many thousands of healthcare staff across the world neither I, nor any of my colleagues here at IHLM, heard any mention of it.  No one posted about it in our Linkedin feeds or mentioned it in the many emails that arrived in our inboxes this week. 😥

It is shame that this important event – organised by the Frontline Health Workers Coalition, the World Health Organisation and other partners – did not receive more publicity.  As we were reminded during the global Covid-19 pandemic, the world’s 59 million healthcare workers are one of the most valuable resources our planet has.  Their sacrifices must be better recognised, their voices must be better heard, their health and safety better protected, and their needs better met.

Another reason we, at IHLM, were sad not to be able to organise our own events over the last week was because this year’s theme – “Build the Health Workforce Back Better” – is one that is very strongly aligned with our own mission to help transform the competencies and capabilities of the healthcare workforce and, in so doing, support improved health outcomes.

We shall certainly make sure that, this time next year, we organise a number of activities to support this important week.  But, for now, one small and immediate contribution we can make is to offer a 20% discount on all our upcoming online courses for registrations received over the next three days.

To claim 20% off an IHLM online programme simply register and make payment using the discount code WHWWeek2022 before midnight this Sunday.

    October 18, 2023

    Pretty much everyone working in business or management has heard of the MBA degree. However, few healthcare leaders have the time, money or need for such a lengthy and expensive programme.

    IHLM is deeply saddened by the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty was patron of more than 600 charities, many of them in the field of health and medical care.
