We can say this with some authority because it’s our nurse practitioners who are organising it.
You’ve got until very early May to book into (pictured) Kylie Palmer and Sue Anderton’s Making Waves 2016: The Health Practitioner Movement.
Like all our nurse practitioners, Kylie and Sue are inspirational. On top of working in our demanding Emergency Department, and raising young families, the pair formed The Ocean Road Health Group a year ago to promote the role nurse practitioners play throughout Australia.
You’ll hear about their story during Making Waves 2016: The Health Practitioner Movement. To be held in Warrnambool on May 19 and 20, speakers and practical sessions will cover areas including pharmacology, anatomy and physiology with a clinical focus and advanced patient assessment. The two-day event will be a valuable educational opportunity for nurse practitioners, doctors, advanced care nurses, paramedics and students in associated health areas. It will also assist in raising the profile of nurse practitioners.
There’s a lot of South West Healthcare staff involved including our Director of Nursing Julianne Clift who will present the opening address. SWH is also a sponsor.
