Care will be planned giving consideration to ethnicity, culture, gender, spiritual values, sexuality, age, disability and economic and social factors in consultation with the patient as all or any of these may impact on their health journey.

 

The nurse will work in a multidisciplinary team environment, show leadership and embrace change in the coordination and delivery of their care, inclusive of appropriate referral to, and in consultation with, other relevant health professionals, service providers, and community 

 

The nurse will assist in the provision of supervision and support for less experienced clinicians or students. Will maintain their professional development and work within mandated directives, standards, policies and procedures of the Health Service.
