Revised guidelines and a new social media policy come into effect for all nurses and midwives today.
Updated National Board requirements come into effect today:
The revised guidelines and policy explain the National Board’s expectations of nurses and/or midwives and have been designed to improve awareness, understanding and compliance.
Nurses and/or midwives need to know and understand these documents to ensure their practice meets National Board expectations. The National Board released the content of these documents on 13 February on its website, so that practitioners could familiarise themselves before the requirements take effect.
The Guidelines for advertising regulated health services, Guidelines for mandatory notifications and Social media policy were developed jointly by the 14 National Boards in the National Scheme and apply to all registered health professions in Australia.
