Tamada Nursing Service Brunei Darussalam CEO Haji Julaini bin Haji Latip said leadership in nursing and midwifery is not just administrative tasks, but about inspiring others, fostering innovation and driving positive change as well as guiding and shaping the future of healthcare delivery.
Haji Julaini said this at the Nursing and Midwifery Leadership and Management Forum, organised by the Brunei Darussalam Nurses Association (PENJURU) at the Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences (PAPRSB IHP), Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) yesterday.
He added that nursing and midwifery leaders are responsible for creating an environment that encourages continuous learning, collaboration and commitment to patient-centred care.
PENJURU President Datin Paduka Hajah Suraya Noraidah binti Abdullah said the nursing association is a professional body for nursing, midwifery and health workers registered with the Nursing Board for Brunei.
The board has important duties in ensuring procedures are carried out in a safe manner and approved by the government as it is necessary to maintain standards and safety for patients and those on duty, she said.
The forum saw the participation of over 200 nurses and midwives where they were briefed on the role played by PENJURU in improving the image of the professions. The second forum featured panellists Haji Julaini, Assistant Professor and Assistant Head of Nursing and Midwifery Programme Dr Deeni bin Idris and Head of Secretariat of the Brunei Darussalam Board of Nursing Hajah Milazita binti Haji Leman. – Rokiah Mahmud
