South Australian Orthopaedic Nurses Association (SAON) - News

Presidents Update

Greetings to all SAON members & ortho nurses.

Happy international Orthopaedic Nurses day for 2014.

Orthopaedic nurses day is celebrated each year on the 30th Oct & a number of workplaces hold special events, The RAH ran an Ortho Olympics day which saw much fun & frenetic orthopaedic nursing activity going on. Please let us know if you held other events & even send in pictures for the website & future newsletters.

It is a time to celebrate Orthopaedic nursing & all the wonderful work we do for our community.  

SAON held another successful workshop in late July at Flinders Medical Centre titled: When things go wrong in Orthopaedics: Orthopaedic complications’

We had close to 100 attendees on the day and the feedback was very positive. A number of the sessions will be delivered online to all ANZONA members via the webinars in the coming months. I encourage you to visit the ANZONA website to see when the webinars will be held. www.anzona.net

We have our annual quiz night coming up on the 24th Nov at Sportsmed from 1900. I encourage you to all attend for a fun night of quizzes & prizes

Together with ANZONA & other local ortho groups SAON is working towards increasing awareness of the value of orthopaedic nursing & the work of the many local & national orthopaedic nursing groups.
As a member of SAON you are part of a larger group & we are asking you to promote the speciality of orthopaedic nursing among your colleagues, not just nursing but allied health & medical colleagues. Please take any opportunity you have to promote & discuss the work of SAON & ANZONA with your colleagues. By increasing the awareness of SAON & the work of ortho nurses everywhere we will be able to strengthen the speciality & ultimately improve the care our patients receive.

SAON has distributed letters to all orthopaedic nurses throughout South Australia that outlines the value of the speciality & the work of SAON & ANZONA including how they can get involved.
Can I ask you to please be a big part of this process & spread the word.

We plan to hold some joint meetings next year with groups such as SAWMA (SA wound management Association) so keep an eye on the SAON website www.saon.org

Thank you for your continued support of SAON & I wish you all a great end to the year & a Merry Christmas.  

Paul McLiesh
President
SAON

New Zealand Orthopaedic Nurses

In New Zealand we have held three educational sessions throughout the country so far this year. There are more planned for later in the year, with our AGM scheduled for 30th August. We are currently looking at ways to celebrate Orthopaedic Nurses Day for 2014 which will include greeting cards to all current members. We are also exploring avenues where we can offer support to our nursing colleagues in the Pacific Islands. We are aware that clinical and educational support may not be specifically orthopaedic related, that some areas may want the general basic aspects of nursing care before delving into specialist practice. We have also briefly discussed the apparent tendency within the nursing profession to encourage a generalist approach to nursing rather than developing speciality care. It has been noticed that many nurses tend not to develop an area of speciality practice and therefore education in these areas is no longer taken up. How to encourage nurses to develop these specialist skills needed in orthopaedics is of concern. We also wish to acknowledge the contribution of an orthopaedic nurse for her services to people with arthritis. She is not an NZONA member but has been an orthopaedic nurse for a number of years. Kathie Smith has worked at Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital since the 1970s. During this time was was an orthopaedic and rheumatology charge nurse for 20 of those years. She has pioneered services to improve the management of patients and has been active with the Arthritis Foundation of NZ, serving as the president from 2007-11.

At Counties Manukau Health she has held leadership roles helping to improve outpatient and elective surgery. She has been honoured in the Queens Birthday Honours with the title of Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

That’s all for this report,
talk to you later
