Western Australia Branch Autumn Symposium 2023

Mental Health Nursing: Ascending the Mountain - Focusing on Outcomes

The WA Branch Autumn Symposium 2023 will provide ACMHN members and guests an opportunity to showcase innovative practices and research outcomes with particular focus within Western Australia. Presenters are encouraged to present the results of their work, research projects, workforce or clinical improvements. Individuals and teams of individuals do great work, yet we often do not hear about their outcomes.

After years of what feels like continuous uphill challenges, where various external and environmental factors have had profound impacts on workforce and clinical care practices, we are reaching the peak. It is now time to take a break, take in the view of what has changed and survey how those changes have modified our daily lives and practice.
