What Is a Nurse Practitioner?

At Wound Innovations, we are proud to have two Wound Management Nurse Practitioners in our national clinical team, Lynette (based in Western Australia) and Tabatha (based in South Australia), with Sharon (Queensland) very close to completing her NP studies.

NPs are a vital role in our service delivery and enable us to provide wound care services and advice to even the remotest part of the nation.

We are supporting the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners (ACNP) in their ‘Transforming Health Care’ campaign.

The Transforming Health Care campaign is a project by the ACNP that aims to increase the awareness of nurse practitioners in the community and promote the national standards for practice that work to offer high quality and patient-centred care across Australia.

Registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority, nurse practitioners are focused on improving access to treatment, providing cost-effective care, and targeting at-risk populations including aged care and indigenous populations in remote and rural areas.

Educated at Masters level and found throughout Australia, nurse practitioners work as key health care providers in regional, remote, and metropolitan areas to perform advanced physical assessments, order diagnostic tests, initiate referrals to healthcare providers, prescribe medications and collaborate with other nurses and healthcare professionals to provide holistic care to patients.

To support and get involved in the campaign, please view their website for downloadable resources and information: https://www.transforminghealthcare.org.au/
