Law & Ethics Program for Nurses: Module Eleven - Drug and Administration Practice Errors

#nurses #nursinglaw

Wednesday, 22 May 2019

0741513884 [email protected]

Many Nurses have had a fragmented education in relation to the law that frames Nursing practice and Nursing ethics. While they recognise they must adhere to the legal and ethical standards, and the underpinning philosophies and structures, the application of the Australian legal system and rules of ethics are not well understood.

The purpose of this eleven Module Law and Ethics Program for Nurses is to provide the Nurse, registered with AHPRA, the opportunity to obtain the necessary knowledge regarding health law and ethics to confidently work within the current Health Care Industry.

Module Eleven - Drug Administration and Practice Errors consists of a virtual session known as an e-Seminar.

The laws governing drug administration are not always the same as local policies and this can cause frustration and confusion. Further, every Nurse is aware of the risks and problems in medication management. Failures have led to negligence claims and disciplinary actions. Errors are a fact of life and managing them is part of the Nurses' role.

Module Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify legislative and professional rules for drug administration
  • Explore clinical practice situations that give rise to confusion
  • Relate workplace risks and practices to professional liability
  • Examine proposed solutions for risk management in practice

Module Eleven e-Seminar session: 

22 May 2019 @ 1400 - 1600 (Qld Time)
