More about SDU

The Staff Development Unit (SDU) is a dynamic unit responsible for delivering and facilitating continuing professional development for all Latrobe Regional Hospital staff and the promotion of best practice.

This is achieved by development of education programs by our specialised staff, facilitating programs conducted by external organisations at Latrobe Regional Hospital and promotion of internal and external professional development opportunities. 

SDU also administers traineeships for clinical and non-clinical staff.

The Unit is also active in the promotion of inter-professional and regional education via collaboration with local health care organisation, through the Nurse Education Gippsland forum and provision of education to all health care disciplines at Latrobe Regional Hospital.

SDU has Clinical Educators in most clinical areas of the Hospital.  They provide support and education by being accessible to staff and facilitating regular education sessions. 

Agreements are in place with various universities and TAFE colleges to provide clinical placements for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The unit based Clinical Educators provide clinical support for graduate nurses and all clinical staff.
