Nurses cultivating lifelong wellness – for your patients and communities and for yourselves!
Welcome to this ICN resource providing evidenced-based tools for nurses engaged in the prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and the promotion of healthy ageing throughout the life-course. It also focuses on nurses' own health, since healthy nurses foster healthy nations. Why not start by taking your Health Risk Assessment right here!
Grow Your Wellness offers assessment, intervention and advocacy tools for behavioural changes that address unhealthy lifestyles, including unhealthy diet, tobacco use and lack of physical exercise, to support you and your patients in taking actions that can lead to a longer, ‘healthy-life’ expectancy. A section on immunization highlights this cost-effective health intervention to prevent disease from infancy through to adult maturity. Be a champion and a role model by taking actions that can lead to healthier lifestyles and a longer, ‘healthy-life’ expectancy
* NCDs include diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, some cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and mental health conditions
