Launching Regul8 - a new resource for children’s nursing in Africa

On 16th April 2019, the fourth Building Children’s Nursing conference opened in Cape Town, welcoming 111 colleagues from 12 countries. Together we affirmed our commitment to truly engaging with evidence-based research to shape our practice, and to standing together as a community of excellent, African children’s nurses – clinicians, educators, students and researchers. One year on, I am delighted to share with you the Regul8 framework which is designed to comprehensively describe the major influences on regulatory function and provides an intentionally Afrocentric guide to children’s nursing care planning. I hope it will be a helpful resource in improving the nursing care of children in Africa.
