WorkSafe and TAC
ACNP Victoria Chapter is calling for expressions of interest for a WorkSafe/TAC interest group, to help gain access for Nurse Practitioners to WorkSafe and TAC. This is particularly relevant to Emergency and Primary Care NP's who may manage workplace injuries or injuries as a result of MVA's. Please contact Jen Oxley (ACNP Vic Chapter Delegate) at
if you would like to be involved.
Re: Nurse Practitioner Network: Aged Care /Gerontology
We are in the process of determining the level of interest for the development of an Aged Care/Gerontology Nurse Practitioner Network in Victoria.
It is anticipated that the group will be established along similar lines to the other NP network groups providing educational and professional development opportunities as well as support and guidance for candidates and newly endorsed NP's.
As there are both Metro and Rural NP's and candidates we propose that the meetings be rotated through Melbourne and various rural sites to allow all participants the opportunity to host a meeting.
There will also be a discussion thread available on the forum on the ACNP website - Vic Chapter for group use.
We plan to meet a minimum of every 2 months for a full day meeting on a Friday (negotiable)
The meetings will be facilitated through 2 NP's - Cheryl Donohue NP in Melbourne and Deanne Burge NP in Wangaratta
We are collecting names with a view to launch the group early next year, with the first meeting planned for early February 2012 (negotiable) in Melbourne.
Can you register your interest by emailing your contact details to:
