Health professionals - Become an Agent of Change
Agents of Change gives nurses with patients with dementia and/or their carers the opportunity to join the first online Quality Improvement Collaborative to improve dementia care. Participants will be supported to develop their own action plan to improve access to either exercise or carer support (their choice). Action plans can be big or small, but are intended to be embedded and delivered within the nurses’ existing time and resources. They will be supported by clinical, quality improvement, and consumer experts (and others in their collaborative). Activities will be done within the nurses’ existing CPD requirements (and will fulfil these), and they will have access to a $1000 stipend to present their work at a conference or meeting of their choice. The program runs over 18 months beginning with an orientation in April 2018 (tentative). Contact Monica Cations (project coordinator) for more information on firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 8338 7221.

Newborn Behavioural Observations (NBO) Training Workshop
The Newborn Behavioural Observations (NBO) system is a relationship building tool that fosters a positive parent-infant interactive relationship. A supportive, nurturing relationship that is sensitive and responsive to the infant’s needs is a sign of parents' successful adaptation to parenting and optimises their infant's neurological and psychological development.
The NBO training program provides participants with the theoretical foundations and clinical principles necessary to enable them to use the Newborn Behavioural Observations (NBO) system in their clinical practice. Use of the NBO in clinical practice will provide parents with important information about their baby’s remarkable capacities and individuality. It will help parents develop a positive relationship with their newborn child.
The workshop is open to midwives, maternal and child health nurses, paediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians, social workers, perinatal psychiatrists, infant mental health clinicians and family support workers.
