Wound Management Program
The Nursing CPD Institute has created a nine-module Wound Management Program that provides the Nurse with the skill and knowledge to assess, plan, and manage wounds in the clinical setting to achieve the best possible outcome for the client. These sessions are being presented via our face to face conferences/seminars and on our e-Seminar platform.

Law and Ethics Program
The Nursing CPD Institute has created an eleven-module Law and Ethics Program that provides the Nurse registered with AHPRA the opportunity to obtain the necessary knowledge regarding health law and ethics to confidently work within the current Health Care Industry. Many Nurses have had a fragmented education in relation to the law that frames Nursing practice and Nursing ethics. While they recognise they must adhere to legal and ethical standards the underpinning philosophies, structures and applications of the Australian legal system and rules of ethics are not well understood.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Three - Common Law Torts

Commences 4th February 2019 | e-Seminar

One of the major areas of the common law is Civil Law. The rules of procedure, jurisdiction, and the types of cases that can be heard and appealed are complex. The rights of the individual citizen are often supported by the Civil Law. There are numerous torts that can be actionable. In relation to health matters, most have little relevance. Some torts, however, have an increasing importance such as defamation, others have established legal rules that must be adhered to.

Commences 11th February 2019 | e-Seminar

The civil law Tort of Negligence is the most likely cause of action against health practitioners.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Five - Criminal Law

Monday, 25 March 2019 | e-Seminar

It is rare that a health worker "intends" to commit a crime, but it can happen in the course of their work. Deliberate or reckless behaviours that our society considers "outrageous" or beyond the moral standards of society can be criminal acts and as such, these will be investigated by the police and if sufficient evidence is gathered, be prosecuted in court.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Six - Coronial Law

Thursday, 28 March 2019 | e-Seminar

Every State and Territory has had a coroner since Federation. Each State had similar legislation governing when, why and how a Coronial Inquest must be undertaken. Inquests are held in around 20 per cent of Coroner's Inquiries, therefore there is a real chance a Nurse may be called to be a witness. This is a source of anxiety as the coronial system, procedures and requirements are relatively unknown.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Seven - Children and the Law

Tuesday, 23 April 2019 | e-Seminar

Legislation varies in each state in relation to children and particular laws aimed at providing protection from exploitation, abuse and neglect. Legislation specifies obligations imposed on parents and carers and these laws reflect the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) and many of the principles within that Convention are embedded within child protection legislation.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Nine - Contracts and Insurance

Monday, 13 May 2019 | e-Seminar

The critical contracts that relate to Nursing are those that the client enters into when seeking care and our own contract of employment. Failures to satisfy client care contracts have led to court actions. Confusion about the rights and obligations under legislation and the common law can lead to conflicts over employment and of course dismissal from employment. The requirement under AHPRA to hold personal indemnity insurance is another source of confusion.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Ten - Mental Health Legislation

Monday, 20 May 2019 | e-Seminar

Nurses working in mental health have an extensive understanding of their legal requirements in relation to patient rights and voluntary and involuntary admissions. The legislation in each state is clear about protecting rights and the procedures that must be followed when assessing and treating a mentally ill client, these are not well understood by Nurses outside of the specialty. The legislation giving direction and entrenching client rights will be the focus of this session.

Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Eleven - Drug and Administration Practice Errors

Wednesday, 22 May 2019 | e-Seminar

The laws governing drug administration are not always the same as local policies and this can cause frustration and confusion. Further, every Nurse is aware of the risks and problems in medication management. Failures have led to negligence claims and disciplinary actions. Errors are a fact of life and managing them is part of the Nurses' role.
