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 the legal and ethical standards, and the underpinning philosophies and structures, the application of the Australian legal system and rules of ethics are not well understood.

The purpose of this eleven Module Law and Ethics Program for Nurses is to provide 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.

Module Six - Coronial Law consists of one virtual session known as an 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. 

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Know the legislation governing the role of the coroner
  • Understand the rules for reporting deaths to the coroner
  • Relate Coronial Inquest requirements to clinical practice
  • Recognise the obligations of being a Coronial Witness

Module Six e-Seminar session: 

28 March 2019 @ 1400 - 1600 (Qld Time)
Role of the Coroner and Reportable Deaths
Being a Witness in a Coronial Inquest
