Description

Western NSW Primary Health Network (WNSW PHN) has opened applications for its Movement Disorder Nurse Specialist Pilot Program.

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, the Movement Disorder Nurse Specialist Pilot aims to improve access to specialised nursing care across our region for people living with neurological conditions.

The Pilot is focused on building the skill and confidence levels of 12 Registered Nurses across the WNSW PHN region by providing scholarships to undertake postgraduate study and membership to relevant peak bodies, with a priority focus on Parkinson’s Disease.....

The model of care has been strongly supported by Parkinson’s NSW, Associate Professor Rachel Rossiter of Charles Sturt University and the Australasian Neuroscience Nurses Association who are all active partners in the implementation of this pilot.

Parkinson’s NSW CEO, Jo-Anne Reeves, says she is committed to this partnership.
