NaMO wants to hear from Aboriginal nurses and midwives

Feb 26, 2024

The Ministry of Health’s Nursing and Midwifery Office (NaMO) is coming to the Mid North Coast Local Health District to conduct consultation sessions with the Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery workforce.

The aim of the visit is to inform staff about the development of the NSW Health Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery Leadership Strategy.

The Nurse Manager for Aboriginal Health Workforce and Strategy, Kathleen Bohannon, said the visit was a wonderful opportunity for the District’s Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery staff to discuss what they need for their own leadership and professional development.

“The consultation sessions will inform the development of this future strategy at a state level,” Ms Bohannon said.

Members of the Aboriginal Nursing & Midwifery workforce team are invited to contribute to the development of the NSW Health Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery Leadership Strategy.

NaMO’s consultation sessions will be held on 22 and 23 May, however, staff are asked to register their interest before 22 April.

“For Aboriginal nurses and midwives, this is an opportunity to connect, yarn and contribute to a statewide strategy that will strengthen existing workforce strategies and enhance leadership development of the NSW Health Aboriginal nursing and midwifery workforce,” Ms Bohannan said.

Darug woman and the Principal Advisor Aboriginal Nursing and Midwifery Strategy Elise Mccarthy-McPhan and Wiradjuri woman and Ministry of Health Project Officer Kayla Potter will facilitate discussions.

If you are interested in attending these consultation sessions, please register your interest by contracting Kathleen Bohannon via email at Kathleen.Bohannon@Health.nsw.com.au or mobile 0497864292.
