Accountability in the profession of nursing: learning how to critically think and reflect on your actions
This masterclass shares insight into the nursing practices designed to meet individual and family needs who are either living with long-term health conditions or terminal illness. Hear from our academic expert about the holistic approach to nursing care, care provision between hospital and community, mental health issues, chronic pain, co-morbidities and palliative nursing skills including symptom management and psychosocial care.

This class is delivered based on the University of Sydney unit of study, NURS6018 Care of Chronic Conditions, a core unit in the Master of Nursing (Graduate Entry).
