dubbed 'bridging the gap from rhetoric to reality" the show is the largest international health care event in saudi arabia and will also host the second saudi health nursing conference offering 30-hours of cme accreditation to the participants of the conference.

mohammed bin hamza khoshaim deputy minister of health for planning and development will be among the key speakers at the conference. he will discuss the ministry's strategic approach to develop the nursing sector in the kingdom.

the conference is being organized with an aim to present nursing as a novel profession in saudi arabia.

besides raising awareness of employment opportunities for local youth in the relevant fields the conference will focus on achieving excellence in the delivery of compassionate and family-centered care to patients.

it will engage in debate with the local work force about shaping the nursing profession as a service oriented profession in the future. it will also highlight the agenda of the ministry's programs and the leading innovative technology solutions and trends in all its activities.

jane wilshaw executive director of nursing services at the king fahad medical city and chairperson of the saudi health nursing conference said: 'building on the interest and demand of the profession the saudi health nursing conference has achieved exponential growth. during its second edition the emphasis will be to encourage national youth to adopt this profession and overcome societal concerns. it will also fulfill the national goals of 'saudization' in the nursing sector."

'at the king fahad medical city (kfmc) we have embarked upon a 'saudization' program to motivate more nationals to join our nursing team. under the program we send qualified undergraduates abroad to obtain an international bachelor's degree in nursing. moreover saudi nurses with diplomas are being encouraged to join international bridging programs or to study in one of the kingdom's universities. while kfmc is aware that expatriate expertise is vital to run nursing faculties within the hospital our strategy is to have a 30 percent national work force by 2020" wilshaw said.
