QNI community nursing film shortlisted by WHO

Nursing in the Community, the short film made in partnership by The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI), Health Education England (HEE) and creative agency Mother London last year has been shortlisted in the inaugural Health for All Film Festival by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

WHO received almost 1300 submissions from film makers around the world for the three categories. The QNI/HEE film was selected as one of just 15 finalists in the nursing and midwifery category, celebrating the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. The other two categories are animation and video reports.

Dr. Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive of the QNI said: “I am delighted that this film, which has been made with the help of our wonderful Queen’s Nurses, has received this international recognition.

“The film shows the significant contribution of all nurses who work in community settings, delivering complex care to patients at all stages of the life course. The nurses in these autonomous, critically important nurse-led services are supporting the whole healthcare system in this country and it is fabulous to see their work recognized in this way.”

The film festival is due to take place in Geneva either in May or October, depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic. The entire official selection will be screened during the event, but WHO intends to share the entries online in the coming weeks to inspire clinicians and the public now.
