Menopause, Vaginismus and more: Online Professional Development for Nurses and Midwives
To address the changing professional development needs of nurses and midwives, Family Planning NSW has adapted its clinical education courses to offer self-paced online learning.
Nurses and Midwives can continue reaching their professional development goals at their own pace, with the launch of the new online Reproductive and Sexual Health Professional Development for Nurses and Midwives (RSH-PD) course.
Family Planning NSW has designed as a four-part series of webcasts, each session in the Reproductive and Sexual Health Professional Development course offers a deep dive into a single topic of clinical interest. The current session’s topics include: menopause, reproductive cohesion, vaginismus and the pelvic floor.
Family Planning NSW Clinical Course Coordinator Na Pham says “the adapted webcast series is perfect for frontline nurses and midwives looking to expand on their knowledge and skills in providing RSH services to their clients”.
“The webcast series is a flexible way for nurses, midwives and healthcare professionals to improve their understanding and delivery of clinical services in their own time,” said Ms Pham.
“Each year, Family Planning NSW chooses and updates the clinical topics on offer to ensure they are relevant to the changing needs of the community. Our courses provide up-to-date, evidence-based clinical information delivered by Family Planning NSW expert clinicians. These professional development webcasts take clinicians through the best clinical practices and case studies to equip health professional to better serve their communities.”
The RSH-DP course is now open for registration to participants at a cost of $80 per webcast or $290 for the full suite. Upon registration, participant will have the remainder of the year to access the web series.
This course is equivalent to six hours CPD and meets the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) requirements. Upon completion of the webcast series, participants will receive a Statement of Attendance.
