2019 Knowledge Talk Series launches

Texila American University launched its monthly Knowledge Talk Series in April this year. The first event was facilitated by the College of Nursing Department. The first expert speaker and Guest of Honor was Dr. Lonia Mwape, Director of Nursing from Ministry of Health who delivered a talk entitled, "The Nurse and Society".

Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ajay Kumar Podder welcomed the attendees and encouraged them to take the Knowledge Talk Series positively, stating that, "It is part of our corporate social responsibility to give back to our communities through such talks."

Dr. Lonia Mwape talk outlined the role and duties of a nurse and the ethics of nursing. “A Nurse is supposed to perform in such a manner as to promote and protect the interest, safety and well being of clients/patients and ensure no action or omission on their part or within their sphere of responsibility is harmful to the interest, condition and safety of clients/patients” she said. She gave great emphasis on the relationships the nurse has with society; and as society changes, so does the role of the nurse. A plea was made to nurses to redeem the profession by being accountable to what is expected of them by the General Nursing Council of Zambia and Society at large. In her closing remarks, Dr. Lonia Mwape emphasised that across the entire patient experience and whenever there is someone in need of care, nurses work tirelessly to identify and protect the needs of the individual.

The Knowledge Talk ended with the speaker being given the Texila American University certificate of appreciation to the chief guest speaker and concluded with a vote of thanks by the Dean of Medicine, Dr. Elliot Kafukache.
