Heather Henry thinks that primary care nurses are the uncelebrated 'ninjas' of their breed. Their invisibility is the thing she is tackling and she says myths have grown up about what they actually do.
In 2010 the Australian Governments Department of Health and Ageing commissioned the NHMRC to develop Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Overweight and Obesity for Adults, Adolescents and Children in Australia.
The project will explore the impact of the role of the Acute Aged Care Nurse Practitioner of the health outcomes for residents and on the Emergency Department.
This session will provide an overview of the changes to these revised standards and guidelines and general update for attendees on relevant policy position of the NMBA with respect to nurses working in primary health care.
Consumers want care that works in partnership with them, their families and their communities, care that puts patient-centred care at the forefront of primary health care.
Preliminary evaluation findings will be presented with the aim of informing policy and practice decision-making to build the capacity and sustainability of primary health care nursing.
