Four years ago Climate Change became an important political issue in Australia as the alarming prognosis of the science and the consequences for our planet became appreciated by the wider public.
While the politicians have been squabbling, the planet has continued to warm. Climate change is a very important health issue and will have major consequences for our already overloaded health system and for nursing.
Climate change is a seminal health issue and the consequences of inaction will be catastrophic. It is important that nurses understand this issue and contribute to finding a solution. The NSWNA have created a dedicated climate change page here where you can see all the latest updates.
