Nursing and midwives seeking advice about their health and wellbeing now have access to a national dedicated telephone and online service.
Launched today, Nurse & Midwife Support (NM Support) provides nurses and midwives with 24/7 access to an experienced team that can provide advice and referral on a range of health and wellbeing related issues.
The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) initiative is available across Australia and open to nurses, midwives, students, employers, educators, concerned friends or relatives, and the public.
NM Support is run independently by Turning Point, an addiction treatment, research and education organisation.
Anthony Denham, program director of NMSupport at Turning Point, said the service is about providing anonymous, no strings attached support that helps nurses and midwives deal with health issues that may be affecting their personal lives and their work.
Nursing Review sat down with Denham to find out more about the service and the issues nurses can call in about.
