Move Forward With Health Reform: Australian Nursing Federation
The Australian Nursing Federation urges the Federal Government and its state and territory counterparts to move ahead with vital health reforms, at next Monday’s (14 February) COAG meeting.
ANF federal secretary Lee Thomas said funding issues aside, Australian nurses and midwives supported a national health care reform agenda with a focus on primary health.
“We can’t stand still on health reform; we must ensure primary health care initiatives, e-health and local hospital networks move forward to improve access, keep people out of hospitals and promote excellent health outcomes for the community, said Ms. Thomas.
The Federal government has proposed welcome changes to the architecture of Australia health system and nurses and midwives expect bipartisan support for this reform, Ms. Thomas said.
