Reference Groups

The ANMF (SA Branch) provides a forum for interested members to express and discuss professional issues confronting the nursing and midwifery industry.  ANMF (SA Branch) reference groups provide a professional opinion on matters that are either affecting or have the potential to affect the specific area of expertise.

The Reference Groups meet at the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (SA Branch) and there are teleconference facilities available for members who wish to participate.

Current Reference Groups:

Aged Care

Members working in aged care are invited to share their knowledge and experience and discuss practice and sector-related issues through a new group established by the ANMF (SA Branch).

The Residential Aged Care Reference Group will provide a forum for members to talk about professional, industrial or service matters. The group will meet bi-monthly starting in March 2017.
