Sydney has a strong connection to Florence Nightingale who sent Lucy Osburn to Sydney in 1868 to set up nursing training, bringing modern hygiene and nursing ideas based on evidence and data. Read about Nightingale’s contribution to nursing and statistics: HERE.
Elinor Wrobel manages the Lucy Osburn-Nightingale Museum’s amazing collection of medical equipment, records, implements and ‘morbid pathology’ at Sydney Hospital. I encourage you to visit when restrictions are lifted: HERE
