3 hours CPD.
This module acknowledges that despite the best training, supports and working environments, nurses and midwives will at times themselves succumb to illness or impairment, which will require them to engage help, care and support. It also recognises nurses
and midwives are often reluctant recipients of help, particularly in relation to sensitive health concerns such as those related to their mental health or substance use.
This module will directly assist in helping those working alongside nurses and midwives in need, and indirectly assist those in need of help.
This module was developed by the Nursing and Midwifery Health Program (NMHPV) for the ANMF (Vic Branch).
