We encourage and support staff to continue their professional development.
Our Staff Development Unit (SDU) promotes best practice in all areas by developing educational programs and facilitating programs conducted by external organisations. It administers traineeships for clinical and non-clinical staff.
The unit collaborates with other local healthcare providers to actively promote a regional approach to education.
The SDU has clinical educators who provide support and education to staff and graduate nurses.
Agreements are in place with universities and TAFE colleges to provide clinical placements for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
For further information on professional development activities contact theEducation Coordinator on 5173 8059 or 5173 8007.
