|Nursing And Midwifery Continuing Competence Policy|
This policy brings together a number of local policies and guidelines to support this requirement. It has been compiled with input from various agencies within the ACT including the Australian Nursing Federation (ACT Branch), ACT Nursing and Midwifery Board, Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council, Canberra Hospital, Calvary Health Care (Public) and consumer groups. Implementation of an ACT Health policy framework for nursing and midwifery competence would reduce duplication within each division, therefore leading to clearer governance and direction for all clinicians and administrators in relation to professional competency requirements.
