CANCELLED – Clinical Effectiveness for Nurses & Midwives
This workshop will invite participants to explore how to keep personal practice safe and be clinically effective. It will address what clinical effectiveness means to nurses in a very busy clinical environment versus its meaning to managers/organisations. Participants will discuss the enablers and barriers to clinical effectiveness, why it’s important, identify the structures and processes available to nurses to ensure safe practice and discuss the impact on our patients.

Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
