Strengthening the Uganda Nurses' and Midwives' Association for a Motivated Workforce

International Nursing Review published a study conducted by the Capacity Project, the predecessor to CapacityPlus. “Strengthening the Uganda nurses’ and midwives’ association for a motivated workforce” presents results from a survey of nurses that was designed to develop policy recommendations for strengthening the association and improving nurse retention. The study concludes that in order to improve motivation and quality of care, investments should be channeled through professional associations that can provide tangible support for nurses such as professional development, mentoring, and networking.
