Our fourth Nurse and Midwife Wellness Conference, delivered in partnership with the ANMF Vic Branch in April 2017, was our largest and most successful yet.

Entitled, ‘Realise your inner potential’ we attracted over 1,150 nurses, midwives and students and provided an opportunity for colleagues to gather with like-minded peers to learn practical and innovative self-care strategies.
