“Identify the components of Nursing competence”
Nurses often find themselves working in unfamiliar areas and fear their lack of skills and knowledge in new areas are potential sources of incidence and legal consequences.
Evaluating one’s own skill set and identifying effective strategies to overcome knowledge deficits is essential. Understanding the elements of negligence and applying these to circumstances can give clear direction for decision making and delegation.
In this session you will:
- Recognise the professional standards expected of all Nurses registered with APRHA
- Identify the components of Nursing competence in the broadest sense
- Relate the elements of negligence to situations to determine risks
- Apply legal and professional principals to practice
