Annual SWEDNEC Forum
The annual State-wide Emergency Department Nurse Educator Committee (SWEDNEC) Forum was held in Cairns on October 25/26. This is an opportunity for emergency Nurse Educators, Clinical Facilitators and Clinical Coaches to meet for two days of education and networking. It is also an opportunity to share innovative ideas and education programmes that contribute to improving clinical outcomes for patients presenting to emergency departments across the State.
This year, the forum that was sponsored by CENA, QEDSAP and Cairns Hospital was attended by nearly 50 nurses from across the state and included metropolitan, rural and remote nurses.
Thank you to CENA member Hilary Pearce who was this year’s convener.
Wellness in Emergency Care
On May 30, CENA Qld held an education evening that focussed on wellness. Our guest speaker for this fun night was Natalie Cook OAM, 5 times Olympian and Olympic Gold and Bronze medalist who discussed self-care strategies that aim to promote mental and physical health. The night was well attended with nursing, medical and paramedicine represented from a number of SEQ hospitals. The night concluded with a light supper. Thank you to all that attended and especially to Natalie who was such a great speaker.
