European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN)
The mission of EFN is to promote and protect nurses and the nursing profession with particular reference to the EU, by lobbying the European Institutions (i.e., the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council). The EFN provides a broad platform for developing health and social EU policy by supporting the European Union decision making process on all areas which affect the nursing profession. The EFN is strong on working towards a unified voice for nursing in the EU, promoting the value of nursing and strengthening the relationships between National Nursing Associations, specialist nurses and other health care professionals.
Within the Smart4Health project, the mission of the EFN is to foster end-user engagement between frontline nurses and technical developers, to ensure the scalability of the project’s outcome and to make sure that it is fit-for-purpose. Moreover, the EFN is also strongly disseminating the project’s latest advancements at the EU level.
