Northern Territory 2015 Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards
Alice Springs and Darwin events

Now in their 12th year, the annual Nursing and Midwifery Awards will be celebrated with a number of new initiatives.
Celebrations will kick off in Alice Springs on International Midwives Day (Tuesday 5 May, 2015) with a special cocktail event to announce the nominees and finalists.

In Darwin the celebrations will include a joint Department of Health and ANMF NT Branch sponsored Symposium during the day on Friday 8 May, 2015. The Symposium 'Securing a Safe and Professional Workplace' will include presentations from the Northern Territory Coroner, the ANMF Federal Secretary, CRANAplus Bush Support Services and nursing and midwifery scholars Professor Sandra Dunn and Professor Caroline Homer. The content of the symposium reinforces the joint commitment of the Department of Health and ANMF to providing professional development opportunities for nurses and midwives and to improving workplace culture and safety for nurses, midwives and the people they care for in the unique health care environment of the Northern Territory.

In the evening on Friday 8 May, the Minister for Health will host the awards ceremony, a gala dinner and entertainment.

Both the Symposium and Awards will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre. Nurses and midwives who are nominated for the Awards will be invited to attend the gala dinner at no charge. Nurses, midwives and health care professionals will be able to purchase tickets to attend either or both events.

Tickets will be available from Monday 2 March, 2015, from the Darwin Entertainment Centre website.

Keep informed about all three events by visiting the Nursing & Midwifery Excellence Awards webpage.
