Elizabeth reminded us that nurses are the linchpin in the treatment cascade encouraging us to act with a focus on justice, politics and collaborative leadership.
Danielle encouraged us to use creative thinking in our clinical delivery, to analyse the gaps, engage local partners and the local community and have a well defined scope of practice with appropriate governance.
