Recent Forum: The 32nd VPCNPC Forum
The Thirty-Second Victorian Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner Collaborative Forum was held on Monday 20th November 2017. This was the final VPCNPC forum for 2017.
A case study was presented by Anita Wild, one of our Nurse Practitioner Candidates. Claire McNamara from the Office of the Public Advocate updated the group on the Medical Treatment Planning and Decisions Act 2016. After lunch Associate Professor Mark Boughey gave an interactive presentation around how delirium changes our practice. This was followed by a departmental update from Dan Schifton.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the VPCNPC group for supporting the forums and we look forward to seeing you in 2018.
