Focus groups for issues affecting health impaired nurses and midwives

05 Feb 2015

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) focus groups for issues affecting health impaired nurses and midwives are now full.

Late last year we called for expressions of interest for anyone interested in attending these focus groups in Sydney and Adelaide.

Your feedback and insights are still important to us, so if you have missed out on the focus groups, your can provide your feedback via our online survey* on the issue. Survey closes on 11 February 2015.


By way of background, the NMBA and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) are exploring the role of the regulator in the referral, treatment and rehabilitation of nurses and midwives with a health impairment.

The focus groups will be aimed at getting a better understanding of issues affecting management and support for health impaired nurses and midwives.
