Another one in a series of training sessions "Communication in Healthcare" for head nurses of primary health care centers in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina was successfully held in Sarajevo, May 14-17, 2023, as a part of the Strengthening Nursing in Bosnia and Herzegovina project. In cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Health, the Strengthening Nursing in Bosnia and Herzegovina project, inter alia, focuses on improving the nurses’ managerial skills at all health care levels. In order to support the improvement of the healthcare system and the quality of services provided to end users, it is crucial to have competent and reliable managers and leaders among the nursing workforce. During the four-day training, important messages were sent out by Dr. Goran Cerkez, Assistant Federal Minister of Health, Irina Rizvanovic, psychologist/psychotherapist, Professor Nermina Mujagic, PhD and Zlatan Persic.

Communication is one of the basic skills in healthcare, which today has become not only a need but also an obligation of every healthcare worker. Bearing in mind that nurses are the ones who spend the most time with patients, it is very important that these healthcare workers strengthen their communication skills. The training sessions focusing on strengthening the nurses’ managerial skills at all healthcare levels are continuously conducted, as a part of Project’s Component C – Development of Nurses’ Management and Leadership Capabilities activities.

Trainings will continue in the upcoming period as planned.
