Dissemination Plan Launched for IFNA Position Statements
verb: spread or disperse (something, especially information) widely.
The IFNA Board of Directors recently approved a plan to encourage all IFNA members and Standing Committees to strategically share the two online
IFNA Position Statements about family nursing practice and education with nurse leaders and health care organizations in your geographic area and around the world.
This matters: This is the first time that the field of family nursing has developed Position Statements for family nursing practice and education. Please use your influence and contacts to spread the news about the existence of these unprecedented documents. Translations are available in several languages and more translations are being developed. All IFNA Position Statement documents and translations have a URL address.
IFNA needs your leadership: Who will you email, text, tweet, or send a message to via Facebook or LinkedIn today, this week, and this month to help the IFNA Position Statements go viral?
