You’ve finished university and have started working nurse or midwife, so how do you update your knowledge?
Attending conferences gives you a unique education opportunity to broaden your professional development and be inspired.
Each year ANMF presents the two-day Australian Nurses and Midwives Conference.
Here’s three reasons why attending will benefit your practice and future career opportunities.
1. Variety of expert speakers
ANMC will feature presenters working at high levels in academia, government and health organisations.
For instance, Adjunct Professor Debora Picone, CEO of Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare will present on safety and quality in healthcare. Terry Welch, CEO of Maryborough District Health Service, will present on addressing family violence through collaborative partnerships.
2. Specialised streams
If you’re interested in aged care, mental health, alcohol and other drugs, midwifery or occupational health and safety, ANMC will feature specialised streams allowing you to learn the latest research and practices.
3. An opportunity for networking
ANMC will give you the opportunity to network with your colleagues, particularly in your areas of interest. Meeting people who work in sectors you might like to one day work, is a valuable way for you to learn what skills and experience you might need once you finish your grad year.
