ANF study day on legal issues for midwives and nurses

‘Am I Responsible?’

Australian Nursing Federation (Vic Branch) Professional Day Conference gives nurses and midwives the opportunity to listen to key players in these changes and to ask questions of these leaders in nursing.

Friday May 22, 2009 at the Rydges on Swanston, 701 Swanston St. Melbourne.

The program includes:
* Magistrate/Coroner Audrey Jamieson starts the day by exploring the coronial expectations in the fulfilment of your duty of care.
* Barrister Ron Gipp examines the impact on nurses of the coronial process with a case study.
* Nigel Fidgeon, the CEO of the Nurses Board of Victoria (NBV), who explains the NBV rationale of moving responsibility for determining scope of practice to the employer and the individual nurse.
* We then put the three speakers on the spot, in a panel discussion facilitated by Philip Gardner, Partner of Ryan Carlisle Thomas Solicitors and ask them to answer the question ‘So who’s really responsible for making the decision?’ and invite you to put all the questions you have to them.

This forum aims to provide midwives and nurses with firsthand information on the coronial process, tribunals and NBV expectations relating to their duty of care. It also aims to provide insights into education and practice as a result of changes to professional regulation and government policy.
