World Immunisation Week has come and gone, but there is still a strong focus on ensuring New Zealanders catch up on missed vaccinations. There are new eligibility criteria for receiving the bivalent COVID-19 booster, with pregnant people aged 16 – 29 now eligible.
We celebrate International Day of the Midwife on Friday, 5 May, and hear from a recent first-time Mum about how important midwives were to her pregnancy, childbirth and after-birth experience. We also meet a Registered Māori Midwife who shares some insight into her role and what it means to her.
We farewell two retiring nurses and provide information and resources to mark World Hand Hygiene Day. The last article in the series on creating accessible documents and information features this week, and the quiz tests your knowledge of animated movies.
