Title: Innovation in pediatric nursing Inventions from Turkey


The nursing profession has to renew itself in order to survive, increase the quality of care, improve patient outcomes and provide cost-effective care since it plays a role at all levels in meeting basic human needs such as health promotion, protection, treatment, care and rehabilitation. All innovations in the field of health make great contributions to the improvement of the health of the individual, family and society. Invention or invention is the creation by human effort of something that did not exist before. Most inventions are the result of a new and unique combination of previously existing technologies. Inventions that are new and exceed the state of the art and can be applied to industry can be protected by patent registration. Nurses need to follow innovations, adopt them, take innovative initiatives and put them into practice in order for nurses to plan, implement and evaluate the care process based on evidence, as specified in the Nursing Law. The social, scientific, technological, economic and political changes experienced in the 21st century enlarge the roles of nurses and make it necessary for them to take on new roles from time to time. Protecting and improving children’s health is important in terms of protecting and improving public health. Since Pediatric Nursing covers a wide area, innovation in this field is extremely important.
