This week we are launching a new community on Sosido called the Global Nursing Alliance on COVID-19 (GNAC-19) which connects 7,500+ nurses from around the world to share research and experience during the COVID-19 pandemic.

GNAC-19 is spearheaded and led by the Cancer Nurses Society of Australia and supported by generous industry partners AstraZeneca, BD, Ipsen and Mylan.

Members of GNAC-19 will have access to a members-only online forum to ask and answer questions of their global nursing colleagues, and will receive a weekly email digest with a summary of COVID-19 updates, research and activity in the online forum.

Nurses who already have an account on Sosido will be automatically added to GNAC-19. You will soon receive an email letting you know you have access to the GNAC-19 community; you will continue to receive only one Sosido email digest every Wednesday, including content from all of your Sosido communities.

Nurses who do not currently have an account on Sosido are invited to sign up for free here: GNAC-19 sign-up form. The community is available to current, practicing nurse clinicians and nurse researchers only; eligibility will be verified prior to account setup.
